No Wire Hangers

No, it’s not Bette Davis. Or Tallulah Bankhead. It’s Joan Crawford.

Another great bit of artwork advertising an MGM film by Jacques Kapralik. This one is for “Mannequin” (1938).

  1. The graphics of many of the MGM ads of the 1930s would feel very much at home in the companion art to stories in the New York Times' Arts & Leisure section of the 1970s and early 80s (no shock, since MGM's graphic designs were heavily influenced by Al Hirshfeld, who was doing charactures in the Times' arts section in the 1920s and was still doing them in the 1990s).
