Confidential Magazine i remember my best girlfriend's grandmother laying on the couch reading Confidential Mmagazine and smoking Pall Mall cigaretes. we were too young at the time to know what the magazine was about, but knew it was bad (not compared to what's out there today) as it came in a brown envelope delivered to her gram's house.

Confidential Magazine Confidential was a periodical published quarterly from December 1952 to August 1953, and then bi-monthly until 1978. It was founded by Robert Harrison and is considered a pioneer in scandal, gossip, and exposÚ journalism. Newsweek said Confidential focused on 'sin and sex with a seasoning of right wing politics.' Its journalism consisted of equal parts of innuendo and exposÚs. For example, the magazine alleged that Bing Crosby was a wife beater and that Rock Hudson and Liberace were homosexuals (It referred to them as 'Lavender Lads.'). It also revealed that Robert Mitchum had been charged with smoking marijuana. Apart from spreading gossip and outing homosexuals, Confidential combined its exposÚs with a conservative agenda especially targeted at those who sympathised with the political left and at celebrities that it claimed were engaged in 'miscegenation.' Humphrey Bogart described the publication's popularity: 'Everybody reads it--but they say the cook brought it into the house.' Comedian Groucho Marx once wrote to Confidential's editor, 'If you don't stop writing nasty things about me, I'll be forced to cancel my subscription.'
