The Internet Archive is a treasure trove of things to be discovered. While writing a blog post I found out that many issues of Photoplay Magazine have been scanned and are available on the site. A brief history of Photoplay according to Wikipedia:
"Photoplay was one of the first American film fan magazines. It was founded in 1911 in Chicago, the same year that J. Stuart Blackton founded Motion Picture Story, a magazine also directed at fans. For most of its run, Photoplay was published by Macfadden Publications. The magazine was renowned for its artwork portraits of film stars on the cover by such artists as Earl Christy and Charles Sheldon. Macfadden Publications purchased the magazine in 1934. With the advancement of color photography, the magazine began using photographs of the stars instead by 1937. Photoplay published the writings of Hedda Hopper, Walter Winchell, Hazel MacDonald, Adela Rogers St. Johns, Sheilah Graham, Dorothy Kilgallen, Rob Wagner, later editor and publisher of Rob Wagner's Script, and Louella Parsons, among others. Photoplay merged with another fan magazine, Movie Mirror, in 1941; and with TV-Radio Mirror in 1977, when the name became Photoplay and TV Mirror. The magazine ceased publication in 1980 and its staff were moved to Us magazine."I decided to make a page for them here on my blog so I can arrange the links in chronological order (and later I hope to add screenshots of the covers and contents so you can easily find articles and photos of your favorite stars). You can choose to flip through it, scroll down, zoom in or out, search within each magazine, print and even screenshot articles to save or use for your own blog posts. You can also create a free account and save items to your profile instead of searching for things again. Let me know what exciting discoveries you've made browsing the pages of Photoplay!
