1943. On a lawn, presumably outside the studio, Rita Hayworth poses with the cover girls. It looks like the photographer must be perched in a tree – no mean feat given the size of the camera! The caption on the back of the photo reads, somewhat tantalizingly:
SEVENTEEN COVERISTS – – – Each of this array of beauties has adorned many magazine covers, and now appear together in Columbia’s Technicolor “Cover Girl”. The “V” symbol, l. to r., Dusty Anderson, Karen X. Gaylord, Susann Shaw, Martha Outlaw, Dicki, Jean Colleran, Dicki, B.J. Graham, Betty Jane Hess, Peggy Lloyd, Eileen McClory, Francine Counihan, Anita Colby.
