Who is this guy? Looks familiar but I can't place it. Mid-1950s French card issued by a brewery:

PS: I don't think it is Robert Cohen; this is his card from the issue:

First two names that came to mind were Robert Villemain and Alphonse Halimi. Don't think it's either one though.

Looks to be of French-Algerian or French-Moroccan descent.

Wish I had a photographic memory for these things like some guys. Sadly I don't. :(

Bill Schutte is always good at these things.

I think Dauthille might be right. I have some other cards from the series w/tentative IDs:

Dauthille v. Charles Humez:

Villemain v. Nardico

Don't know how right I am on these but tracking down stuff like this is part of what makes collecting such fun!
