Famous Monsters Of Filmland With Forrest Ackerman Frank Frazetta Boris Karloff Christopher Lee & Bela Lugosi
First up, a still from "The Invisible Ray"!
On page 49, two stills from "How to Make a Monster"!
On page 50, "The Creature From the Black Lagoon" and a still from a Christopher Lee Dracula movie, which they didn't identify... I'm not sure which one it's from off the top of my head, either!
On page 51, a gag pose from "Son of Frankenstein" and a still from "Horror of Dracula"!
On page 52, stills from "Dracula Vs. Frankenstein" and that Dead End Kids movie with Lugosi!
Page 53, stills from "Return of the Vampire" and "The Ape Man"!
Next, two pages of Fascinating Karlof Facts!
A sample fact... Karloff won a Grammy for the phonograph record of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"!
Page 56 has a full page ad for one of my favorite Aurora model series, "Prehistoric Scenes"! I had the Sabretooth Tiger, Neanderthal Man,and Flying Reptile myself. I have no idea how they could charge the same price for all of 'em but the Tar Pit Scene.
Page 57's ads feature the merchandising of Warren, with posters of Eerie and Vampirella covers, plus a Creepy jigsaw puzzle!
