Every once in a while I put up a little highlight review of LIFE magazines that match with today's date. Let us look at the 1937 issue for today:
"1937 Closes with the Big Apple." Want to learn the latest dance craze? Follow the illustrated pictures and get dancin' with the Big Apple. (Pages 29-32)
On the Cover: "Her Name is Hope Chandler and she is only 16," said to be the most beautiful of the women in New York's Paradise cabaret. What do you think of her looks? She certainly doesn't look 16! (Page 43)
Pictures to the Editor...some "hats." (Page 80)
Other Interesting Bits:
The Lindberghs pay a surprise visit to the US (5 years after the kidnapping of their child) on page 14
The Kennedy Family "Nine Children & a Million Dollars," on pages 18+19
Movie Review of Tovarich, which stars Claudette Colbert (love her!), pages 22+23
Ad: "This Gift May Save His Life"...an automatic cigarette lighter!, page 50.
The Camera Overseas: The French Academy receives French woman for the first time, pages 64+65
And to close, one more picture of two ladies dancing "the big apple." I just love it too much to not include it!
