SEVEN FOOTPRINTS TO SATAN Covers
Eve is depicted as a brunette, the way she was described in the story.
FANTASTIC NOVELS reprint
Eve is again depicted as a brunette.
The Photoplay edition had the movie Eve on the cover,
1942 Avon reprint
The girl on this cover resembles Thelma Todd, but that could be coincidental.
Avon published A. Merritt's books for years.
This girl is a blonde, but looks like she's from a later period. As is the book.
Front cover, back cover, and description.
1970's edition has a blonde, with the hero depicted as similar to Doc Savage,
whose adventures were popular at the time
We also see blondes on the other A. Merritt books, so it wasn't just SEVEN FOOTPRINTS TO SATAN, and it wasn't only because of Thelma Todd.
But with SEVEN FOOTPRINTS TO SATAN, it had been her to begin with.
