Here's a monster matinee issue of Monster World for your Saturday morning coffee reading pleasure. Issue 7 has lots of those wonderful advertising pages we loved as kids (but now I realize how much page-space was taken up for them!), and a Son of Frankenstein filmbook, a note about Basil Rathbone's dislike for being known as a horror actor, and Ghidorah! wags his tail. There 's a wonderful two-page spread on Famous Monster's 3rd Fantastic Amateur Make-up Contest! too. A rather smart way to sell the 4.95 dollar kit. Of course, that kit, unused, would fetch a lot more money today. Then again, I wonder how many millennials are into monsterkid stuff?
