Photoplay Sep.-Dec. 1950

  • Cover boy and girls (l.-r., in order of appearance): Alan Ladd, Elizabeth Teylor, Shirley Temple, June Allyson.
  • Third time’s the charm? She’d already graced the January and June covers so the October issue marked Liz’s third Photoplay cover in 1950!

Photoplay Sep. 1948 – Alan Ladd

Very unusual cover for Photoplay! Not that I’m complaining. 🙂

Photoplay September 1948 Alan Ladd


Ladd was very popular, a huge star. In the following year he’d star in The Great Gatsby.
