Cosmopolitan Magazine (1913) Vintage Ad

Cosmopolitan “America’s Greatest Magazine”
advertisement from a 1913 Moving Pictures magazine.


Hello! Yes, I want to talk to you.

This is Alice Joyce, you know. You’ve seen me ever so often, even though you’ve never heard my voice, You know me so well already that I’m sure I don’t need any formal introduction.

What I wanted to tell you was that the other day a member of the Cosmopolitan staff came across the Hudson River to the Palisades where I do my acting for the Kalem. I enjoyed the call very much. We had quite a little chat — he was a real nice young man.

And what do you think? Just before he started to go, I found he’d been taking notes of everything I said and was going to have it all published. Well, he seemed so real courteous about it that I finally quite entered into the spirit of the thing.

I even picked out my favorite photographs, and said if he thought people would be interested to go ahead and use them. So the article and the photographs are to appear in the November number of Cosmopolitan Magazine.

The publishers have made a special offer for just this once to enable you to get this number and the two following numbers — 45 cents’ worth of magazines for the very low price of 25 cents for the three. But if you want to read what I have to say and see these latest pictures of me, you had better send in this coupon right away, because so many of my Moving Picture friends have bought the November number that there are only a few left.
