Notes

From page 3: "On the cover: Marta Toren and Dana Andrews who star in Columbia's "Assignment Paris". The image on the cover and a non-English movie poster appears to be a film still that has been edited, adding open eyes and a smiling mouth to transform the original sultry look. It could be just a slightly different photo from the same shoot.
