Famous Monsters Of Filmland #118 (1975) With Ray Harryhausen
Despite the Cyclops on the cover, the main feature in this issue is on 20,000 Miles to Earth!
On the inside front cover, we have this pair of pre-human females from Skullduggery!
Page 3, the usual bit (and wit) from editor/creature Forry Ackerman, accompanied by a still from The Boy Who Cried Werewolf!
Page 4 brings us to the first page of FANG MAIL, the lettercol for FM! This issue is decidated to Ray Harryhausen, in honor of his then-55th birthday! Featured letters and photos were from Denis Constantineau, Raul Garcia, Jeff Pittarelli, Mike Smithson, Vincent Espitia, James A. Duke, Mike Duffey, Ms. Trudy L. Howe, Dempsey Patton, and Wayne Faucher -- and if any of you happened to come across this post doing a web search for your name, please speak up in the comments!
Page 5 brings us the Table of Contents, telling us that the cover was painted by Harry Roland, as well as telling us what we'll see in this issue in the weeks ahead! But for now, let's go to part one of the 20 Million Miles to Earth filmbook, which was started in issue 117 (which, sadly, I don't own a copy of)!
