On The Newstands - 28 February (Part 2)

29th February and continuing yesterday's post of magazines, this issue of German magazine Bunte from 2002 was one of many countries to feature Joan's wedding picture on their cover.

As mentioned yesterday, Joan and Percy chose English OK Magazine for the exclusive coverage of their wedding.

Our second magazine goes back to 1959, another English magazine called Picturegoer which Joan was featured on a number of times.

This issue was only a cover shot - I cannot find anything inside the magazine about her.

Le Lundi was a French magazine that featured Joan on their covers a number of times, and this issue from 1987 had a 4 page article inside.

The last one to feature in this post is actually more of a newspaper than magazine, called The Weekly News from 2004.

On The Newstand - 28 February (Part 1)

Looking back in the archives for today I have seven magazines. So I am going to feature 3 in today's post and as tomorrow is a leap year day will feature the other 4 and there were are not many magazines published on 29th February!!

Starting with 1983, this Spanish magazine TP Teleprograma featured Joan and the cast of Dynasty on their cover.

In 1989 this American issue of Globe is what we call a shared cover as Joan is not the only celebrity on the cover.

The magazine was featuring an article about Alexis slaying Blake with a butcher's knife in a forthcoming episode of Dynasty.

In 2002 OK Magazine was chosen by Joan and Percy for the Exclusive coverage of their wedding. Under the headline "All The Pictures The World Has Waited to See" they would appear in publications worldwide.

Remember to check tomorrow's post for Part 2 of these magazines which range from 1959 - 2004

This picture of Joan was taken at the unveiling of the first waxwork at Madame Tussards in London. I visited the museum the day after to see the waxwork, which at the time was displayed in The Conservatory with other wax models of JR (Larry Hagman), Dame Edna Everage, Alfred Hitchcock and Dolly Parton. In 1989 Joan was remodelled a second time for the gallery of stars and was featured on a staircase while a photographer took pictures.
