If that's the question you are asking when looking at wedding dresses, then the answer is "no".

I love Hitch. Especially Vertigo. Got a framed half sheet in my living room. Just picked up a Frenzy one sheet off Ha movie poster weekly. Just studied his movies. Here is my pencil drawing of the master I did out of art school.

That's awesome!  I have a Rebecca insert, a Birds Australian insert, a Notorious re-release poster all framed hanging and a few others.  I also just got this one and it's on the wall (not my copy, but it's just as sweet):

these early DC's, from the fifties, had Ira Schnapp in charge of creating the most marvelous back covers as house ads for the other romance titles. They are works of art themselves

The back covers ARE great also !!

..just posting this cover again to highlight a special significance: The dude is crying!! An overwhelming amount of Romance covers feature a girl all teary eyed. I can't think of another cover where i see the guy crying over a girl. Challenge of the day, post a Romance cover with a guy bawling his eyes out (even take Silver age if anyone can find one)

Nicely done gents, and so fast!  Have seen the Charltons, but never seen that ACG book before, that's a winner!

Guys being upset over relationship, like sad not mad, are so rare in romance.  Funny, you'd think that would be a natural winner for the target audience - guys getting some of the pain for a change. 

Here's the only other one I can think of that even comes close.  A nice mood piece.
