The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing Life Magazine Display

The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing Life Magazine Display


From the wall of her apartment in Los Angeles comes a display plaque featuring the first of her two Life Magazine covers. This one was publicity for the film The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing, in which Joan plays the original Gibson Girl Evelyn Nesbit. Based on the true story of Pittsburgh steel industry heir Harry K. Thaw's ruthless murder of famed architect Stanford White, the sordid details of a madman's mental state made for one of the "trials of the century." Along with the plaque, you'll receive a PAL formatted (Region 2) VHS recording of the film.


    The plaque is in good condition but was exposed to direct light causing it to fade over the years.
