Even More Rejected Book Cover Photos

Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 151


Here are two more photos I submitted to UPK that were not used for the cover of the book. These two are kind of in the middle of the first ones I posted and the one that was actually used. They’re a bit more pre-Code-like because Ann is showing some skin, but her expression is not as seductive as the one that was ultimately used.


I have hundreds of portraits of Ann so narrowing it down to the seven I submitted was a delightful ordeal.

    Some astonishing portraits the last few days. I particularly like the one directly above. She looks somewhat like a composite of many other actresses from the day (Eleanor Parker, Maureen O’Sullivan, Myrna Loy, etc.), but still distinctive.

    I agree it’s a striking shot, but more serious than sultry and I guess not as marketable.
