Movie Life Magazine {April 1940}

I love movie magazines. There is something about them that I just love. Maybe it is the photos? The trivia? Interviews? I don't know what, but they sure are intriguing.

The magazine I'll be featuring today is one of my favorites - Movie Life (April, 1940). Why? It has an article of one of my favorite actresses - Deanna Durbin. That may, or may not be the reason why I bought this magazine. *grin*
Look! Cary Grant takes an old family friend to the premiere of My Girl Friday {I love that movie!}. Also the Los Angeles' Mayor greets Rosalind Russell at Girl Friday press party. In the bottom picture on the left, Olivia de Havilland is sporting the new pompadour hair-do. While on the right we have Judy Garland on a date to her movie, Strike Up the Band.  
Here we have, Errol Flynn, Anne Shirley, and Shirley Temple. 
 Next up we have a four page spread on Deanna Durbin. Enjoy!

Have you seen the film, Young Tom Edison (1940) starring Mickey Rooney? I grew up watching this film, so it was fun seeing this little spread.
This page is filled with stars! We have a wedding picture of Ronald Reagan & Jane Wyman. Katharine Hepburn {in a darling dress and pumps!}, Raymond Massey & Mrs. Roosevelt! That's just on the top row of pictures. Underneath we have Mickey Rooney, Pat O'Brain, Gene Autry, Olivia de Havilland, and many others!!

I hope you all enjoyed this little peak into one of my magazines I own. Let me know how you enjoyed it!
