Saturday Evening Post cover, November 30, 1957.
To enhance his illustrations, Rockwell used lots of ready props. His numerous business trips to New York and his 1955 round-the-world trip for Pan American Airlines provided him with lots of ticket stubs, receipts, and nightclub ephemera. Post readers reacted to the cover with the usual assortment of feelings. A man from Norfolk, Virginia, said it was "far from funny a moral tragedy," but a Cleveland reader, called it "superb," and said he did a lot of traveling and well appreciated the character's dilemma.
