Published between 1916 and 1948, CINE-MUNDIAL was the Spanish-language version of MOVING PICTURE WORLD magazine. They were not exactly alike in their content. While heavily influenced by Hollywood, CINE-MUNDIAL focused on film topics that were of special interest to Spanish-speaking readers.

Each issue was always brimming with photos of films and their stars, including the current film beauties. A number of the glamour girls had a role in a horror/thriller or two from the day. Carole Lombard starred in SUPERNATURAL, Gloria Stuart was in THE OLD DARK HOUSE, Frances Dee would later be cast in Val Lewton's I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, Lupita Tovar played the Mina Harker counterpart in the Spanish-language version of DRACULA, and Fay Wray, of course, starred in KING KONG. All are worthy of mention in the MONSTER MAGAZINE WORLD Horror Hottie Hall of Fame!
