March 19, 1939, Tip-Off!
July 17, 1932: I’ve been meaning to post some of the Tip Poff  gossip columns that The Times used to run in the movie/drama pages of the 1930s. The Times experimented with the column and by 1939 was calling it Tip-Off! Isn’t this March 19, 1939, logo great? Of course it was too bold for The Times, which dumped it immediately.

I’ll try putting Tip Poff in the afternoon slot as a substitute for Paul Coates and Matt Weinstock. They will return for January 1962, when The Times absorbed their columns after Otis Chandler killed the Mirror-News.
Notice the fine quality of Hal Foster’s version of “Tarzan.” He doesn’t seem to have any problems with perspective, unlike Rex Maxon, who was drawing the strip in the 1940s.
