Work is interfering with my blogging time once again. So I’ll let Baburao Patel’s Filmindia magazines entertain us for a while.
Equating cigarette smoking with Paradise since 1946!
Can you imagine the reaction this kind of image on a Filmfare cover today would engender?
Have a smoke and dream of…Angel Boobies! What better way to while away your time?
Wonder if the movie Sona will ever see the light of day again? I would love to see a 1946 vintage Madan Puri!
I much prefer the movie advertising covers to the product advertising covers. Sona and another film called Naiyya made it to the back cover several times. I really enjoy the optimistic tone of this ad:
Love all these people crushed under the weight of a gold bar.
Naiyya looks like it could be interesting too. Don’t mess with the gods!
They just don’t make magazine covers like they used to. Or film posters, either! I haven’t been able to find out much about DB Neroy online (the artist responsible for many of these images, as well as the ones inside) although DD Neroy seems a more famous name (his son, perhaps?). SM Pandit is more well known, especially for his calendar art. These covers would make a wonderful book, don’t you think?
