Brief pinup – On this week’s back cover you have convincing proof, in the shape of Miss Dorothy Morris, that the world is still made up of people of two sexes. Miss Morris,’ shape may be observed in more detail in movies produced by M-G-M. This particular portrait also proves that there is still a lot of come-on in a well-turned ankle, and it is by no means necessary for a young movie queen to go around dressed like a six-weeks old baby in order to attract attention. Dunno what happened to her right arm in this picture, but what d’ya expect-two of everything?
