17. Henry Ainley as "Llam Carve" in "The Great Adventure."

Scope and Content

One cigarette card with illustration of Henry Ainley.

Text on the reverse of the card reads:

Originally a bank accountant, appeared on the stage in the first place as an amateur, joining the company of F. R. Benson at a later date. He was after-wards with George Alexander, and like many of our well-known actors, has appeared with success in the United States.

Of handsome presence, and a fine elocutionist, he is a firm favourite with admirers of good acting; and his playing of the part of "Ilam Carve" in "The Great Adventure," found much favour with the theatre-going public.
