Photoplay Sep 1923

  • Cover girls (l.-r., in order of appearance): Lois Wilson, May McAvoy, Pauline Garon, Marion Davies, Eleanor Boardman.
  • Boy, hats sure were de rigueur back then, weren’t they? 🙂
  • January cover girl Lois Wilson would later star as Daisy in the first known screen adaptation of The Great Gatsby (1926).
  • Thanks to Citizen Kane, today April cover girl Marion Davies is known primarily for her relationship with William Randolph Hearst. Her career warrants re-examination; she appeared in many silent films and was especially noted for her comedic roles.
  • The May issue features an article by April cover girl Barbara LaMarr on “Why I Adopted a Baby.”
  • The June issue features “A Star in Search of Her Soul” about the very successful and famous serial queen Pearl White.
