  Los Angeles Times file photo  

[Update: This is Joan Crawford in “The Ice Follies of 1939.” ]
Hm. What’s going on here?


[Update: This image was published Jan. 3, 1939, in The Times  Midwinter Edition, which wasn’t microfilmed, so no reference copy is available.

The Midwinter Edition was a souvenir publication/almanac that The Times printed every January from at least the 1890s up to about 1961 as a way to promote Southern California. Although nothing appears in the clips, it’s entirely possible that Otis Chandler did away with the Midwinter Edition as one of his many reforms after he became publisher.]
