Issues of Life Magazine in "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty movie stars Ben Stiller in the lead roll as a Life magazine photo editor who retreats into an intensely vivid fantasy world in times of stress.  Much of the film is set in the meticulously recreated offices of the storied weekly. In those offices hang mural-sized versions of LIFE magazine covers through the years.

Some of these cover posters seen in the movie were real covers used throughout the years but most of them were never real covers at all - though we feel that many of these would have been super as "real" issues.  To be sure our visitors do not go on any "wild goose hunts" looking for fake issues we decided to feature them, as well as the real issues in the movie, in this article.
