Photoplay Oct.-Dec. 1923

Photoplay Oct 1923

  • Cover girls (in order of appearance): Alla Nazimova, May Allison, Constance Talmadge.
  • The Nazimova cover really stands out, doesn’t it? No flowers, no hat, no sunny yellow-orange background.
  • As that cover suggests, Nazimova was just as singular an actress. She was theatrically-trained and had appeared in Ibsen and Chekhov on Broadway before moving over to the silver screen. Here she is with Valentino in a 1921 screen adaptation of Camille. Photo from the great site allanazimova.com
