Photoplay December 1929

Some of the best magazine covers of the twenties were issued by Photoplay, a magazine founded in Chicago in 1911, that reached its top in the 1920s and 1930s. This is one of the most appealing, depicting Norma Talmadge as drawn by Earl Christy. She was one of the victims of the rise of the talkies, hence the article title "the microphone - the terror of the studios".
