DOCTOR X 'FILMBOOK'
On the newsstands every Tuesday, the UK's BOY'S CINEMA magazine was published for nearly thirty years, from 1919 to 1948. The magazine "fictionalized" movies of the day, much in the way of the filmbooks seen a decade or so later in FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND. All types of films were covered, including westerns, mysteries, adventures, and sometimes horror.
The 689th issue, dated 25 February 1933, included a narrative of First National/Warner Bros. DOCTOR X, starring Lionel Atwill and Fay Wray, released the year before.
