Esther Williams is the cover girl in this week’s issue of Life magazine with a feature on “Bathing Beauty.”

And what happened to all that WPA artwork? It was sold as junk.

    A great issue! Erupting volcanoes, dancing native girls, the movie set of “Bathing Beauty”, WPA art up for grabs, and Hedda Hopper’s hats! Her hat with the dead hand on top is the winner.

    I am always databasing film still from the 1920s and ’30s and seeing these amazing art deco and art moderne interiors and lamps and chairs and statues, and you just KNOW around 1950 someone went, “let’s throw out this old crap.”
