Lovely vintage copy of Modern Screen magazine from January 1952 with timeless Ava Gardner on the cover. Apparently she was Miss Glamor of 1952. Inside you'll find out whether Lana Turner is through with love, why John Wayne is top man, and how sporty June Haver is. Also there is an 'intimate' portrait of Debbie Reynolds by her sister, I believe. Cute details like she prefers dill pickles with her potato salad to sweet. These magazines are so full of great ads and wonderful Golden Age celebrities that it's impossible to mention them all.
Modern Screen featured celebrity articles, interviews, gossip and photo features. It rivaled Photoplay for popularity. It also had gossip by the infamous Louella Parsons, Queen of Hollywood (until her rivalry with Hedda Hopper), where she viewed herself as the arbiter of morals. She could ruin a movie at the box office, or send a star spiraling out of favor!
This Golden Age Hollywood magazine ran from the thirties through eighties. Sadly many of these classic movie magazines were mutilated for their covers and movie ads. This magazine is intact.
