Marvel's Junior Miss


Just time today for a ginchy 1946 ad for JUNIOR MISS, an ARCHIE-style teen mag from the House of Ideas...during a period when very few of those ideas were all that original. Dig that dialogue, Gate! Cindy Smith...hmmm....Cindy Smith. Not much of a ring to it though. Ah, but note that it also features "the story of James Mason." Not exactly the Brad Pitt of his day. Kind of ironic, though, when you consider that a decade and a half later, Mason would star in the film...LOLITA!
