The cover artwork for FM (Famous Monsters) sure isnt what it used to be. This ain't no work by Basil Gogos (and is that really Henry Hull?)

And FM is now $9.95 an issue?? Yikes!  faint2.gif

Again I refer to the African Queen - If I were to back and restore it, no one would be able to read the great Charlotte North Carolina Exchange stamp on the back... That probably mean this one hung up all over the state in South Carolina...  Now that just adds to the poster - completely lost if backed...

Just some of the things I ponder.  If I linen back this, that history is pretty much forever gone...  



Chris (Gingerman), I think you will appreciate this post and image, too, since you were talking about the exchange stamp on the back of your poster recently.

Charlie, did you end up backing this? Or leaving it as is?

A post-Uncle Forry Famous Monsters of Filmland issue from Nov/Dec of 2012.

Late artist Basil Gogos saved the day on this issue's cover art.  notworthy.gif

Does the first issue from 1962 of Sam Rubin's great 8 mm Collector/Classic Images belong here?  Okie

Okie,

is this like a pamphlet? Or did the writer do reviews? Or was it more a listing of films that were being released on 8mm?

Looks interesting, for sure.

Hi Jeff,  8 mm Collector is the very first name for what is now Classic Images magazine.  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classic_Images
https://m.facebook.com/MuscatineClassicImages/

8 mm Collector started as a kind of newsletter about the fun, trials, and buying/selling of 8 mm movies.  The first issue even mentions collecting multi-reel 8 mm silent films for Douglas Fairbanks (Robin Hood, Mark of Zorro); your friend and mine, Lon Chaney (Hunchback of Notre Dame, Phantom of the Opera); John Barrymore (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde); etc.  Also, the first issue has a fun article on figuring out how to take pictures of a large collection of "coming attraction" slides by using an Autographic Kodak camera's front lens element, and taping it onto a Kodak Flash Bantam camera!  Doing what you had to do in 1962!!!  There's also an article on field trips to visit two 8 mm companies (Entertainment Films, and Astra Films) that sold films to collectors.  8 mm Collector grew into Classic Images which today covers many aspects of film, collecting, and even posters sometimes.  Over the years, unique art has been reproduced of movie stars and movie advertising that you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else.  It's a great mag then and today.  Okie

Thanks for the history, Okie. Im familiar with Classic Images but never knew its genesis or where it originated from.

In addition to Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, I'm also collecting & filling in the 10 issues of Monster World, which James Warren and FJ Ackerman decided to produce and publish in place of issues 70-79 of FM.

MW was published from Nov.1964 to Sept. 1966.

Ive read that Warren & Ackerman wanted to get to issue #100 of FM quicker, so did this maneuver, with these issues.

Up to yesterday, I only had issues #1 and #3.

Yesterday, I had issue #9 (July 1966) arrive, so was fortunate to be able to tick another off the missing list.
