Art Profile: Film Fun


Film Fun was a pulp magazine that ran from 1915 to 1942.  When the magazine started, the covers featured paintings of contemporary film stars.  When that didn’t sell, the decision was made to start featuring pin-ups on every cover and by 1922, Enoch Bolles was painting Film Fun‘s covers.  As you can tell by the covers below, Film Fun didn’t take itself too seriously.  It ceased publication in 1942, after the U.S. Post Office cracked down on the mailing of “salacious” material.

The covers below are naughty and innocent at the same time.  They’re also a lot of fun.  All of them were painted by Enoch Bolles:
