Fan Magazine Fun: More 1920s Fans Draw Their Favorite Stars

A little while ago I posted a page from 1925 Motion Picture Magazine that displayed entries in a “draw your favorite stars!” contest for kids. Looks like a previous issue (from April) had a contest for adults, too!

I’m loving all of these, especially the slinky Colleen Moore. Nita is surprisingly modern (perhaps that’s fitting?) and Zasu is almost anime-inspired. You could say that the Zasu sketch nabbed the $10 prize because it was just a tad ahead of its time.

Hope everyone’s been having a great summer! I’m gearing up for next month right now–a theme month maaaay be in the works (my hints are the subtlest). It’s going to be a fun one, folks!

  1. These are amazing!!!!!

    I have a gigantic crush on that Colleen Moore drawing. Heck, I have a gigantic crush on Colleen Moore! lol. O to see the complete “Flaming Youth”!!!!

    • I’ll join you in longing for the rest of Flaming Youth! Anything and everything we can find with Colleen Moore in it is fine, actually. She’s definitely one of my favorite silent era actresses!
