I must admit I'd never heard of Florence Lawrence so there's something else I've learned.  Like you say, there are loads of cards which show actors and actresses who later became film stars but don't mention films.

Yeah, she's not exactly very well known these days. I did come across a clip of Gyles Brandreth talking about her on breakfast television. This kind of subject is always a work in progress and open to interpretation.

There are a couple of German film stars, Elsa Kr?ger and Lucy Doraine, who were so famous in their days that they got entire sets to themselves.  I doubt that anyone nowadays has ever heard of them.  1920s, so too late to qualify as oldest film-related card however.
