Welcome to Le Singe Magnétique, the official blog of BA_Harrison, author of thousands of movie reviews on IMDb, collector of worthless tat (according to my wife), and creator of amazing stock illustration for all your creative needs.
I came by this issue of Film Weekly as part of a pile of vintage magazines given to me by my mother-in-law, Christmas 2012. I found all of them extremely fascinating (especially the old adverts), but for a lifelong fan of monster movies such as I, this particular magazine was easily the cream of the crop.
Why? The clue is in the date and the headline on the cover—'New "Shudder" from Hollywood'. What was the biggest and scariest thing to come out of Tinseltown that year? King Kong, of course!
