Magazine Covers – 1970-1979 – Part 2 (Film Magazines)

The picture collection has thousands of magazine covers, hundreds of which, sprinkled throughout the decades, are Film Magazine covers. 1970-1979 seems to have more than others, which is why I decided to give Film Magazines its own post for the 70’s. The 70’s is my favorite decade for cinema. What is yours?

We continue our look at magazine covers throughout the decades with a diverse smattering from the 1960’s. We start off with some teen magazines (teen magazines, much like the teenagers, were invented in the 1950’s and really came into their own in the 1960’s).
