It appears the tale of SCREEN FACTS ALBUMS is not quite over. Mike from MONSTER MAGAZINES BLOGSPOT was kind enough to inform me that there was indeed a third edition that featured Bela Lugosi's 1931 DRACULA and directed me to Pierce & Ballantine's 2000 edition of MONSTER MAGAZINE & FANZINE COLLECTOR'S GUIDE #2. Sure enough, on page 232 a SCREEN FACTS ALBUM NO. 3 is listed. The editors list the date of publication for the series as "1971-1972?" I purchased my copy of SCREEN FACTS ALBUM NO. 2 at Bond Street Bookstore in Hollywood back in the mid-70s and considered it a back issue even at that time.

Unfortunately, the cover scans for the various magazines in the Guide are large enough to view but small enough to make a decent scan a challenging prospect. I have yet been able to find any additional material on the elusive and short-lived SCREEN FACTS ALBUM series. As a result, I felt compelled to create a "reconstructed" image of the cover of the third edition utilizing several graphics sources. I think it turned out to be a pretty fair representation. Below is the image:

There ya go! That looks like it!

I see #2 the most often, by far. Maybe there was a warehouse find of #2?
