James Dean features on the cover of a Bravo in August 1957. In that issue, Bravo — still mostly a film and TV magazine — asked whether the privater life of Sophia Loren is a scandal, and carried a for-page feature on James Dean’s “new film” (Giants was released in West Germany in late December 1956, so who knows what that meant).
An advert for a portable TEFI record-player in Bravo in July 1958. Let it swing, Daddy-O!
German teen star Peter Kraus — Germany’s Elvis (though rather feckless like Cliff Richard) — on the cover of Bravo of 6 June 1959. That week Bravo also asked if Marlon Brando is an asshole. Yup.
The oldest poster on this site: Marilyn Monroe in a Bravo poster in August 1957, a year after the magazine first appeared.
