“Okay, so for our cover this month we need a blonde in a slinky gown, a space hero with a ray gun, lots of scientific-looking stuff, two naked people in tubes, and lots of planets in the background indicating an outer space setting.

An animated clip from (1935). The mermaid was played by Olympic champion swimmer Josephine McKim, who was the body double for Maureen O’Sullivan in the deleted nude swim sequence from the 1934 Tarzan and His Mate. Original post here.
