Max Factor

Now this one makes me want to go and buy some makeup. Not like today's scary make up counters with their intimidating orange faced ladies or the self-serve section at the local K-Mart, where you're more like to find Max these days. Max Factor cosmetics, Her Majesty's Arcade, Sydney. I'm not familiar with Sydney at all, so I wonder if the store front still looks similar? Anyone know? I love the Moderne styling!

The advertising in this window is a film tie-in. The musical 'Ziegfeld Girl' was released in the US in 1941 and starred James Stewart, Hedy Lamarr, Judy Garland and Lana Turner.

Thanks heavens, you're back -- I missed you!

Lord. What I wouldn't give for Hedy Lamarr tie-ins in this Kardashified age.
