SMILE BE SEEING YOU
Girls just want to have fun.


We took a dip in the pop culture cesspool (see previous post) and just couldn't seem to get clean again, but we finally found a way to get back that fresh feeling. A while back we posted a Film Fun cover with the lovely Lupe Velez on the cover, and then we followed up with another post with interior pages. Below are ten more Film Fun covers, with trademark smiling beauties and playful blurbs, circa 1940 to 1942. Ah, we feel so much better now.

IN THE LUPE

We wrote about actress Lupe Velez just a few days ago, and now we’ve come across this great Film Fun cover she posed for. Film Fun ran from 1915 to 1942, and was a lighthearted zine that always had pin-up style art, either painted with utmost skill by the likes of Enoch Bolles and John Held, Jr., or photographed in a style that made the subject look like a painting. It was Bolle who produced the fantastic pirate-themed cover above, and it looks like he had a ball doing it.
