Vintage Movie Script: THE TERRIBLE PEOPLE, 1928 serial based on Edgar Wallace novel

Here’s another one-of-a-kind item tied to a long-lost movie serial from the silent era. The Terrible People (1928 Pathé) adapted the Edgar Wallace mystery novel of the same title (but originally serialized in Detective Story Magazine as The Gallows Hand). George Arthur Gray’s script faithfully adapts the Wallace story but adds a grotesque mystery figure […]

JUNGLE STORIES, Spring 1944

A very nice wartime sample of this popular Fiction House title, with the near-obligatory GGA cover (painted, as most of them were, by George Gross). Issues of Jungle are fairly uniform, beginning with the lead story in which Ki-Gor the Jungle Lord and his luscious lady Helene encounter a lost civilization ruled by an evil […]

ADVENTURE, October 1940

Very strong issue, one of the last edited by Howard Bloomfield. Walter Baumhofer cover, excellent story lineup.

ADVENTURE, October 1, 1932

A great Hubert Rogers cover graces this 1932 issue with an all-star author lineup. At a quick glance this copy looks pretty good, having complete covers and spine with very little edge wear.  Unfortunately, the inside pages are deeply tanned and a little brittle, with some chipping evident. Still readable, and an adequate place holder […]
