The “Moroccan Princess” Who Had the Laugh on London (Nov, 1959)

She doesn’t seem to have made a huge impression, at least that I can find online. There is a reference in a publication called Theater Arts and one called Hispano Americano, but Google isn’t allowed to actually show the full content.

The “Moroccan Princess” Who Had the Laugh on London

A masquerading model, a pot of murky makeup and London got a royal ribbing.

By HANS HOBEL

“–UNDER ANY LIGHT. She looked divine under any light—that dark, coppery skin she has . . .” The gentleman sighed reminiscently and toyed with the handle of his umbrella.

“Yes . . .” His companion nodded. “She was beautifully built, y’know. Legs—”

“Did you—” The first gentleman expressed shock.

“Hardly. Couldn’t imagine trying. It’s—well, it’s seldom you meet someone so—how shall I say—regal in the true sense of the word.”

“At any rate, she’s no longer with us, the princess. Pity,” Umbrella said. Both speculated silently for a moment where the princess could have gone.

He makes faces (Sep, 1947)

Wow, $2,000 is a lot for a mask in today’s dollars. With inflation the price would be $20,566

Wladyslaw Theodor Benda passed away about a year after this article came out. Before he started making masks he was an accomplished painter.


He makes faces
IF YOU want to buy a mask from W. T. Benda, internationally famous mask maker, you’ll have your choice of several kinds—realistic, grotesque, comic and fantastic—and it’ll set you back only about $2,000.

Put it on. Feel anything? Mr. Benda says a man automatically assumes something of the character of any false face he puts on. The mask gives the illusion you’ve “escaped” from yourself.

THE GREATEST FRAUD perpetrated on malekind started the day the first cave woman put a pat of red clay onto her cheeks and undulated past a loitering cave man. He quickly hoisted his club and pursued her. Since then, man’s loftiest desire has been to be loved, to possess, marry and own a beautiful woman. Through the march of centuries this desire has endured—this bright fraud called “beauty” still blinds men.

HYPNOSIS CAN MAKE YOU SLIM!

If will power doesn’t work for you, your subconscious mind may— but beware of amateurs!

By AIDA LOTT

“CLOSE YOUR EYES and hold both arms straight out in front of you,” the doctor ordered. A plump blond girl sitting on the edge of a couch—a girl who would be very attractive if she could take off twenty pounds—did as she was told.

“Now relax,” the doctor went on, his voice soothing, without inflection or emphasis. “You are drifting calmly. You are getting close to sleep. You are floating, relaxed, waiting for sleep to come. It is peaceful, dark, cool. You will sleep soon.”

Tear out your hair (Mar, 1969)

Tear out your hair

Just one. Place it on the proper panel below. First, look at the root. Has the hair broken off near the root? (,A sign of brittle hair!) Now, look at the shaft. Is it limp? Wispy? Faded? Color-consistent end to end? Look at the end. Is it a good solid end? Or a great big split? Now stretch the hair to the breaking point. When broken, normal hair will crinkle at the ends. Brittle or damaged hair won’t. Analyze it. Any problems? Find a sample hair-care program below.
