  • As you can see there’s a new cover format starting with Photoplay’s February 1935 issue.
  • Cover girls (l.-r., in order of appearance): Loretta Young, Lillian Harvey, Jean Harlow, Irene Dunne.
  • The Young cover (by the great illustrator Georgia Warren) uses color in quite an arresting way, don’t you think?
