Photoplays (fotonovelas) were really popular in Brazil in the late 1950s and most of the 1960s. Most of those were simply translated from Italian publications but some were actually photographed with real Brazilian people. Here's 'Radio Romance' published by Rio Grafica Editôra (which also published the likes of Cinelândia, Filmelândia and Radiolândia) in which popular singers Osmar Navarro and Nelly Martins play the main roles supported by singer-song-writer Tito Madi and actor Grande Otelo. As far as I know 'Radio Romance' had a short spanned life... this is issue no. 7 - August 1960.
