Humor in a Femulator Vein

Mad_78_movie_prop

This is a movie prop from the 2003 film Down With Love depicting Mad cover boy Alfred E. Neuman femulating actress Renée Zellweger, who plays the part of a book author named Barbara Novak in the film. The film takes place in the early 1960s, thus, the 1963 cover date.

Coincidentally, the prop cover above was glued to a real issue of Mad (number 80), which has a back cover (displayed below) depicting a member of the Mad staff femulating a “Lady Clinic” model.

  1. I loved that movie - especially the fashions from the 60's. It was "Mad Men" before "Mad Men"! Delicious!

  2. Such a blast of reality and it is merely a reflection of society! Thanks for sharing!

    I DO read the side-bar!

  3. I remember having the Mad edition with that back cover. I recall looking at it over and over again and reading the caption over and over. It was one of the few early items I ever saw that pertained to a man dressed as a woman. Thanks for the memories.
