We haven’t seen this one before. Robert McGinnis must have been off his meds during this period of his career. He developed a more realistic style in the sense that girls had properly proportioned limbs and his backgrounds were fully filled in instead of being montages, but they are also very dark. I call it his Gothic Period. Dark earth tones, spooky scenes, and creepy trees. I hope I don’t sound disparaging; this is good stuff. It’s just such a change from what we are used to.

I like the way she’s holding her coat up to keep from tripping on it, and the way the loose belt end is flapping about.
