The magazine I'm sharing with y'all today is a copy of Photoplay Magazine from April 1940. Hehe...I may or may not have picked this because it is April currently -- I like to do that sometimes when sharing vintage things from my collection. Anyhow, if you are unfamiliar to what the Photoplay magazine is, it was one of the first America film fan magazines that started back in 1911 in Chicago, IL.
::Fun Tidbit:: Photoplay merged with another fan magazine, Movie Mirror, in 1941; and with TV-Radio Mirror in 1977, when the name became Photoplay and TV Mirror. The magazine ceased publication in 1980 and its staff were moved to Us magazine.

Hmm...things haven't changed much have they?
A fun little spread for the films: Too Many Husbands  & My Favorite Wife .
Look at that hat!
*sighs* That outfit on the bottom right looks simply divine for Easter Sunday.
So many familiar faces...Mickey & Judy. Fred MacMurray, Robert Taylor, Robert Shaw and Jack Benny.
I like the back of this hairstyle, the front not so much. Too puffy for my taste.

Well, I had fun sharing this magazine with y'all today, and I hope you all enjoyed this little peak.
What was your favorite page from the magazine that I shared?
