The Surprise Between the Covers

Ran across this 1930s Italian magazine a while back.  That's Madge Evans with Bob on the front cover, as well on the back.  (Please excuse the images being truncated.  I really do need a larger size scanner!)  There are any number of magazines from England with Bob on the cover, as well as a good number of French and Spanish publications.  His image does not grace too many Italian magazines.

The magazine is not just a fan mag, but covers items of general interest.  For instance, what's an Italian magazine of the 1930s without stirring photos of Benito Mussolini, "Il Duce."  Bob and Madge wrapped around a fascist dictator ... difficult for me to grasp that concept.  Can't imagine that Bob was pleased.
