Volume 26 Issue # 11 COVER STORY
Los Angeles model Phyllis McCreary posed for Executive Art Director Tom Staebler's
camera to create this Harlow spoof for our annual Sex in Cinema roundup (see page
174). If you can't find the Rabbit, stop looking at Phyllis and look at the photos.
Check the picture of Warren Beatty. If you can't find Warren Beatty, it's because
he's half hidden by Paul Newman. See the lipstick marks? Phyllis is a creative
kisser; yes, indeed. Chinese say, "Woman who kiss like rabbit all hopped
up." (Harlow can you go?)
