This is from 1943. There is a lot happening with this cover. The handcuffs suggest that the man with the guns just escaped custody. Maybe the woman in red helped him with those pliers that she’s holding. Is she now trying to steal a license plate or replace the old one? If she’s trying to do a replacement, I think she has more important things to worry about. It’s going to take more than new plates to make people not notice all the bullet holes on that car.
