Famous Monsters of Filmland 1965 Yearbook

Take a trip down vintage horror memory lane with this 1965 publication featuring all your favorite classic movie monsters!

“DON’T BUY all the copies of this FAMOUS MONSTER YEARBOOK # 3 off the noose-stand because last year you & your friends read the Yearbook # 2 to tatters-leave a few copies for the other guys. Of course, maybe the other guys got to the magazine rack first, in which case you are staring at the palms of your furry brown hands instead of a nice new exciting copy of the much sought after YEARBOOK.

In case you have picked up a copy from a stand that’s already sold out, consider this: you have just done the impossible. And why not? Didn’t your teachers tell you FAMOUS MONSTERS is impossible? (They just do that so they can take your magazine away and read a free copy.) Didn’t
your parents tell you such reading material is impossible?

Even we tell you it’s frankly impossible!-im-possible to find a
More fiendish . . .
Frightening . . .
Fantastic . . .
Fantabulous . . .

Anywhere on earth. Because it’s out of this world.

As Vampa the Vampire sez, “You can bat your bottom dollar on that!” So don’t be a fink, sink your cash & then your teeth in this toothsome new gruesome edition of the world-famous Fear Book . . . and then laff all the way to the Blood Bank!”
