Obscurity of the Day: Betty’s Boy Friend

Here’s another of those newspaper Sunday magazine cover series, this one going way out on a limb to be different. It’s a romance, if you can believe it! I know, I know, how original. Anyway, the artwork by Russell Patterson on Betty’s Boy Friend is a delight, even if you have to brush the cobwebs off the storyline.

Betty’s Boy Friend was distributed by Hearst’s International Feature Service imprint, and was a short-runner. It had just eight episodes, running July 5 to August 23 1931.
