In June, 1931 it emjoyed a circulation of 2,540,000. In 1936, the publisher sold the magazine to its Vice President, Adman George S. Fowler. In 1937 it merged with The Delineator, another women's magazine. However, two years later it ceased publication.

Famous quotes containing the words pictorial and/or review:

    Cinema is the culmination of the obsessive, mechanistic male drive in western culture. The movie projector is an Apollonian straightshooter, demonstrating the link between aggression and art. Every pictorial framing is a ritual limitation, a barred precinct.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

    Twice and thrice over, as they say, good is it to repeat and review what is good.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)
