"David Horne elaborates: "SUNDIAL occasionally did parody versions of other magazines--for example, there was a parody of LOOK magazine and another one of the NEW YORKER. This particular issue, of course, [MOVIE SCREEN]was a parody of the movie magazines that were popular at the time. It came out in 1949, although as my listing notes, there are three different months listed [the front cover states May, the Table of Contents says March, and in the indicia, it's June], so it's hard to tell exactly when. It's numbered volume 37, number 8, for what that's worth. Of course, the interest to monster magazine fans is the cover, which so presciently foreshadows the cover of FAMOUS MONSTERS #1, which came nine years later. The magazine is actually pretty funny, including the cover article (technically about Frankenstein's monster, although it just calls him Frankenstein). The article [entitled, "The Private Life of Frankenstein"] talks about the monster's home life and "acting" career, and includes a picture of him barbecuing in a suburban back yard. As I said in the book, there's no way to know whether Forry or Jim Warren saw this before making their own magazine, but it's an interesting curiosity all the same."
