This week’s Scan Sunday features a bunch of great cover stories from Germany and one from Austria. Included is a 1986 of Quick (that’s how fast you forget their gossiping about a possible Streep/Nicholson affair for the release of “Heartburn”) and a lenghty Stern cover story on “The House of the Spirits and the return of romantic movies, also covering Sleepless in Seattle and The Piano. The fourth magazine, another beautiful cover, has been replaced with higher resolution scans. Many thanks to Fred and Alvaro for their contributions.

In case you have ever wondered, like me, if Simply Streep has found every magazine that has ever run an article on Meryl Streep, you’re wrong. Some time last year a fan from Canada, Fred Meandro, contacted me, offering a large collection of covers and articles (those kinds of emails you just wish to happen). With the help of my friend and fellow contributor Alvaro, we’ve been able to get hold of a massive collection of very rare articles and cover stories which has been sorted and digitized. This collection is too precious to just put it out in one update, so why not turn it into a new feature? Every Sunday from now on, a couple of those new magazine scans will be posted here for your reading pleasure. Let’s start with four magazines from the United States, Italy, Germany and Belgium. Many thanks to Alvaro for his wonderful support on these new finds.

Six promotional featurettes for Meryl’s films, including Postcards from the Edge, The River Wild, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Prime, Doubt and Suffragette have been added to the video archive (the Suffragette video has been added before but went without mention). The former five are not full featurettes but rather bits from an entertainment program, still a great find and some wonderful on-set footage and old interviews. Click any of the previews below.
