Motion Picture Classic August 1931 - Cover Jean Harlow - Art by Marland Stone - Inside Clara Bow, Lupe Velez, Mary Pickford, Clark Gable

Sorry, this item has sold.

Wonderful rare old copy of Motion Picture Classic magazine featuring Jean Harlow on the cover, art by Marland Stone. This is the August 1931 issue, and it full of stories about the film industry, gossip, stories about Hollywood Celebrities, and lots of great vintage adverts. It's quite the trip back in time and a great collectible for the film buff or movie fan. The features and photos inside include a very young Clark Gable in his first leading role, alluring Lupe Velez, and the faith healing abilities of Mary Pickford. There is a review of Clara Bow's career, and so much much more. This is a rare magazine.

Motion Picture Classic magazine had a few names before it ceased publication in 1937. It was started in 1915. Early movie magazines with stunning art covers are highly sought after and hard to find complete. Marland Stone specialized in glamorous movie star portraits for the covers of fan magazines in the twenties. Later on he did pulp covers, but never signed them, fearful of his reputation with the more prestigious clients.

CONDITION: Good condition, but tanned and brittle. There is wear on the spine, and a fluorescent sticker on the cover. Can be read and enjoyed, but handled with care.

SIZE: It is a 8.5 inch by 11 inch format
