Here's a link to e-copies of many (but not all) issues of the original Famous Monsters of Filmland.

This link is to an index that can help you find stop motion subjects like "King Kong", "Ray Harryhausen", etc. Note that the index first lists people alphabetically, then lists movies on page 2. I haven't explored it fully.

The index is on the Classic Horror Film Board, a fun and busy forum with a surprisingly active King Kong category.

Hah!  I looked through about a dozen early issues, will probably check out some more later.  

I used to read those, way back when there wasn't much else.  (apparently there were a couple of other mags trying to jump on the bandwagon but I never saw them at the newsstand.) A lot of recycling of the same photos and painful puns from issue to issue, but I liked how it introduced kids (like me) to the classics of the German silent cinema and thirties horrors.  I must have bought my cut-down 8mm prints of The Lost World and Nosferatu from ads in the back pages, after saving for months.

Thanks for posting this!
