Gregory d'Alessio in College Humor, May 1937

Lights! Camera! Cartoonist Gregory d'Alessio takes us right to the action in his full-page cartoon from the May 1937 issue of College Humor. When it comes time to shoot the big love scene, what guy isn't prepared to step in as the leading man?

"I hope he blows up in this scene—I'd like to show him how to play it."
Gregory d'Alessio

College Humor, Vol 5, No. 1, May 1937, page 33
