August 25, 1972 - Life magazine is one of the worlds most recognizable publications. From 1936 to 1972 the weekly publication of Life served as the nations foremost authority on cultural trends and the state of the American experience. It ceased publication until 1978, when it returned as a monthly until the year 2000. Since then Life has returned as a weekly, published in 70 newspapers across the nation. The company is also well-known for its many books on photography, writing and, in conjunction with Time, many self-help and 'how to' volumes. Life magazine continues to be one of the most important publications in the country, both for its current issues as well as its back catalog. Researchers, designers, and the simply curious use Life magazine as a reference for style, trends, celebrity news, as well as the award-winning photography that first made the publication famous. By now there is hardly anybody in the United States who isn't familiar with both the logo (white lettering on a red rectangle) as well any number of photographs first published in the magazine, like the famous V-Day kiss in Times Square. Life magazine is dedicated to continuing its place in American publication history, and back issues of the magazine can fetch considerable figures if in good condition. The magazine has gone from being simply another magazine to a sought-after collectible. Collections of Life magazine are often found at auction. Where Life will go in the future is unknown, but its resiliency has proven to be formidable, and most experts agree that Life will remain an iconic, growing force in American culture for years to come.

Being a lifelong student & researcher of the JFK Assassination (dual doctorate holder, a D.D., & a Ph. D.) this is one of those
'Grail' type items that any serious Assassination Analyst should have in his/her library.
If you scrutinize with a keen eye you'll observe several obvious flaws with this pseudograph [fake picture).
That which stands out the most is the anomalous shadows cast by LHO's body as well as the peculiar angle of
how LHO is standing.
I could go on, but why waste all the surprises and the chance to increase YOUR understanding of that one moment
in our history that a piece of darkness extinguished the blaze of an extraordinary man.
1) If we fail to anticipate the unforeseen or expect the unexpected in a universe of infinite possibilities, we may find ourselves at the mercy of anyone or anything that cannot be programmed, categorized or easily referenced.
2) It is the duty of those who CAN see what is going on to expose to those who cannot, the situation that they are unaware of!
Cuando vi la portada de este número de LIFE pensé en todo lo que tendría dentro. En 1946 era la revista mas vendida incluso más que su hermana TIME. Vi a Lucille Bremmer en la película que dio origen a la portada. Bremmer no era la mejor bailarina que acompañó al Sr. Astaire. En cuanto a técnica de baile nadie mejor que Charisse o Vera Ellen. Pero la pareja Astaire-Bremmer tenía magia, al menos en la secuencia de "This heart of mine" una de las dos que bailaron juntos en la película. En la secuencia de "This heart of mine" todo está inspirado. La música de Harry Warren y Arthur Freed, los arreglos musicales de Conrad Salinger, los decorados de Cedric Gibbons, la coreografía de Robert Alton y la dirección de Minelli. Pero algo falló. La película fue y sigue siendo un fracaso. Creo que se adelantaron a su tiempo. Con todo esto en mente compré la revista de 1946. Pensando que en su interior habría hermosas fotografías. Decepción. Tiene 10 fotos de 4 x 4 pulgadas todas en blanco y negro y solo una de la secuencia en mención. No historias. Nada de Lucille Bremmer. No importa. Me queda la portada, de la bellísima Lucille Bremer. Un suspiro por ella.
