Ray, this is beautiful. Is this Italian?.. not sure, and definitely not up on the languages.
What's the background?
I will also await Ray's reply, but would hazard a guess that it may be Portuguese ? Maybe not as in a magazine from Portugal but perhaps from Brazil ?
You are correct, Kerry; this beautiful magazine is from Brazil. I have four O'Cruzeiro magazine's with Susan. They are about the size of Life magazine and each one of them are gorgeous.
More on this cover it was actually printed in Rio de Janiero, Brazil August 1953. It is a large magazine with many ads including latest models of cars, fashions, romance stories, and many more articles, but nothing on Susan. They spelled Susan's name like " Sujan Hayward " on the inside cover. Thanks.
Thanks Ray - your collection of international magazines always brings to mind just how globally popular Susan was in her heyday.
One may have assumed that a Brazilian mag from 1953 may feature Carmen Miranda adorned with fruit baskets on the cover, but just as in Japan, France, Scandanavia, Spain, Italy and more ( not to mention Australia, Canada, England and so forth) we find Susan Hayward gracing covers in countries outside the U.S. including many non English speaking cultures.
A testament to her popularity and ability to appeal to such a wide range of people and nationalities.
What a cool cover! Love it.
A lovely picture Ray which certainly shows Susan's bone structure to perfection. Thank you so much.
SORRY...and this is NOT meant to offend the picture at all! But when I looked at the 'pose' and Susan..I thought...'Susan could play DIANNE FEINSTEINE, if she were alive today!'
That look and the leaning..AND..the outfit with the big flower..just hit me as a real...DIANNE look of today!!
Thanks for this unique cover/photo...
I love it.....it's fro a n early 50 's (52/53?) quite unknown photo shoot...
