Fun Facts:
The Kodak Brownie Star simple plastic cameras were very popular. Over 10 million Star series cameras were made from 1957 with versions continuing into the late 1960s. The original design was by Arthur H. Crapsey. All were based on a similar layout with each model having various combinations of different viewfinder and flash arrangements, some built-in, some external, some with no flash facility. Some models were available in different colors as well. The "star" name was applied to 127 film cameras, but there were similar models made using 620 film.
