One duplicate. Most are group scenes from dramas, a few portraits, a few without characters; subject matter ranges from early historical dramas, to contemporary scenes, to the war and its effects. The dates have been verified on a few, and all fall during the years of the Pacific War, including Tadashi Imai's Tanjiko-mura (1940), "Hanagoyomi hasshojin" (1940) based on the 19th century novel, "Josei hongan" (1940) made in the same year as the novel by Kan Kikuchi, Yasuki Chiba's "Kuso buraku" (1939). The balance of the stills appear to date within approximately the same period.
