Title: Movie Adventures
Category: Movie
Volume: 1
Issue: 2-3
Date: November/December 1924
Published in: Brooklyn, NY
This exceedingly rare and possibly unique volume published by Brewster Publications encompasses two title changes. Movie Adventures (V. 1 no. 2 – 3 and presumably V. 1 no. 1), Movie Thrillers (V. 1 no. 4 – V. 2 no. 2) and Movie Monthly, the first issue of this title (V. 2 no. 3) featuring menacing image of Lon Chaney on the cover. It likewise evolved in content from an emphasis on movie stories to more of a fan magazine. This volume is likely the publisher’s copy. The color covers are graphic and pulp-like in style. No other issues of the first two titles have been located despite considerable research. A remarkable repository of early film history.
