The Brownie Starlet is a simple plastic fixed focus camera made by Kodak starting in 1957. It was one of the very successful "Star" series of Brownies.
A similar camera, without the flash contacts, was the Brownie Bullet II, made in the US from August 1961 - November 1968, which was also made as the Rio-400 in Brazil. The Rio-400 was made in 1965 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Rio de Janeiro. A different camera also called Brownie Starlet was made in the UK in 1953-4 for export to the US; this was a rebadged version of the Brownie 127
