Carol Channing on the cover of Time magazine

Carol Channing appears on the cover of Time for January 9, 1950. Channing had just begun starring on Broadway in the musical comedy Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. "Perhaps once in a decade a nova explodes above the Great White Way with enough brilliance to reillumine the whole gaudy legend of show business," Time said in its story.
