    Cinema Arts (Cinema Magazine, September, 1937, Vol 1, No. 3). Magazine (108 Pages, 11.5" X 14"). Miscellaneous.
    Here's your chance to own a marvelous piece of magazine history. This lavishly produced oversized magazine about the film industry was doomed from the start. The costs of producing over 100 pages a month of this quality (portraits by Hurrell, covers by top art deco artist, Jano Fabry, etc.) must have been staggering. Only a handful of issues were completed, and this one is exceptional. The cover by Jaro Fabry is a whimsical high style rendering of Joan Crawford. Inside are full page ads for Broadway Melody of 1938, Lost Horizon, The Prisoner of Zenda, etc. There are great articles with photos about Marlene Dietrich, Clark Gable, Paul Muni, and a three page story on Joan Crawford with 24 vintage photos! There is an amazing six page spread with full page photos of the "progressive proof" art of printing early color photographs. The subject is Marlene Dietrich, and the photographer was one of the best, Anton Bruehl. There are beautiful and unusual full page renderings of Mae West and Greta Garbo by Martin Kosleck. The vintage ads are done in the high style of the magazine. An unrestored magazine that displays signs of use. May include light edge wear with some minor corner bends, light spine wear with clear tape along the spine edges, and surface smudges on the covers. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Fine/Very Fine.
