Wow. And Holy Hypocrisy, Batman! Did you see those ads? "Rollicking bedside fun"? And the other one . . . What a bunch of hypocritical sleezeballs he had to deal with. But that's what it was like.

Thanks once again!

You did it again!! Wonderful magazines, thank you so much - i'll start reading right now - back then there was no Facebook, internet or 3D, so the youngs actualy read these magazines. Pat Boone vs Elvis Presley, James Dean vs Elvis Presley...good ol' days... :)

Below is the uncropped photo from February issue, a photo from June 3, 1956, Oakland, California.

Can you please post bigger scans for some pages from December issue?

Whisper reads like a scandal rag run by a tongue-in-cheek editorial staff.

How can you dislike Dean shown on a pedestal, and Presley on a dilapidated wooden crate?

The covers are hilarious, too.

Thank you for posting these.
