WHISPER MAGAZINE November 1955

Don’t jump off that building! It’s time for another gossip-laden scandal sheet post! Dig on Whisper magazine from November 1955. This month’s issue offers up a buffet of oddities, from the lurid love lives of Jimmy Durante and Terry “More!” Moore, to cautionary tales  about men and their meat and girls hoping for “show-stopping curves,” and finally, one offbeat yarn about a jazzman and his chimp — served up Swanson style! Enjoy, but don’t tell anyone you heard it from me……

  1. This post is great. Makes a lie of the myth that journalism back then was vanilla pudding. The magazine reminds me of Hush Hush in LA Confidential.

    1. Great comment,I love this stuff as well. I'm not 100% sure that everyone would actually call this "journalism," but the inclusion of articles that deal with anything other than celebrity gossip in these magazines is noteworthy.
