John Powers Models and ACJ?_jane 21 August 2013

This album is for reference work for:

ACJ and Lady of the Ads_vlad


Fashion Models, Asstd Fashion Photos for Names, Ref_jane

I moved Vlad's incredible "Lady of the Ads" album the other day and should finish with updating it today. Since Georgia Carroll and others were John Powers models, I thought this might be of some help.

The images are from a .pdf on a fantastic site where are other free-to-read .pdfs on all subjects. Please take a look at the other 1930s and 1940s fashion article pdfs there and add anything else relevant here so we can all take a look:

Might also want to take a look at the "models" in this movie since one of them, Roseanne Murray, shows up in a fashion photo with Margaret Horan in my previous ref album:

The Powers Girl (1943)


"... the John Robert Powers modelling agency was at one time the most famous and powerful enterprise of its kind in New York City. Acknowledging this prominence is the 1942 musical comedy The Powers Girl, with Anne Shirley and Carole Landis starring as sisters Ellen and Kay Evans, who aspire to become high-profile models. Photographer Jimmy Hendricks (George Murphy) takes a fancy to the girls, making a top model out of Kay (Landis) -- but falling deeply and truly in love with Ellen (Shirley). At base, the film is an excuse to show off as many lovely, undraped "Powers Girls" as possible (including future Republic serial heroine Linda Stirling) and to showcase such musical talent as Dennis Day and Benny Goodman's Orchestra. And from time to time, John Robert Powers himself shows up in the person of Alan Mowbray. The Powers Girl was released in Great Britain as Hello Beautiful." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Lillian Eggers

Linda Stirling
American leading woman, a popular action star of serials in the 1940s. She studied music, dance, and drama as a child and received a scholarship to a Hollywood acting school. But she arrived in Hollywood to discover the school had closed, and she took a job as a showgirl at the Earl Carroll Theatre in Hollywood. She modeled in fashion advertisements and one ad led to a screen test. She was cast as a model in The Powers Girl (1943), but more importantly, she was again spotted in an advertisement, this time by executives of Republic Studios...

Patricia Mace

Rebel Randall:
