    What an issue!
    P. 35 Photo of Chaplin being fingerprinted in the Joan Barry case. He is NOT happy.
    p. 63 Lovely Ellen Raines gets the big buildup
    p. 81 the photo caption is “Mexicans Like Plump Girls”…vintage photos of Acapulco and Mexican nightclubs nearby
    p. 86 A bio of gangster and “union activist” Louis Lepke. The movie “Murder, Inc.” [1960] was fairly accurate.
    p. 105 A full page ad titled “Don’t Come To San Francisco NOW”, advises us that “this city and its region are too busy and crowded to entertain you.” Until after the war.
    And much more, including aerial photos of bomb damage to Berlin.
