Lots of Hollywood start appeared on romance covers during the late 40s and 50s. Many of them were noted on the cover, but from time to time I see romance covers featuring generic models that look eerily like people who would go on to achieve fame. I was flipping through an old issue of Comic Book Marketplace, and read a great article by Michelle Nolan about the indica confusion in the final two issues of Ace's Love Experiences. The article featured the cover to Love Experiences #38, and I was taken aback by the male actor. By my math, Nicholson would have been 19 years old in 1956 and just getting his start in Hollywood (I think he has at least two credits in that year) so its plausible that he was doing this type of modelling work as well. The model looks older than 19, and I haven't seen anything of Nicholson from that year, but my guy reaction is that it is him. What do you think?
