Details

This is an original press photo. Posing for the camera is an old, old story to Jinx Falkenburg, model, motion picture actress and radio star. John Reagan (Paddy) McCrary III finds posing like his mother is easy but he can't quite manage that million dollar smile.

Jinx Falkenburg (January 21, 1919 - August 27, 2003) was an actress, expert swimmer and tennis star, and one of the highest-paid and most ubiquitous cover-girl models in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s, one of the first supermodels. She married journalist and influential publicist Tex McCrary in 1945. Known as "Tex and Jinx' to most American households, the glamorous couple pioneered and popularized the talk-show format, first on radio and then in the early days of television. They hosted a series of interview shows in the late 1940's and early 1950's that combined celebrity chit-chat with discussions of important topics of the day. Photo measures 9 x 7inches. Photo is dated 12-12-1946.
