This piece of memorabilia is Movie Story magazine either from January 1938 or January 1939.

This 74 page issue, advertised as now being10 cents, has a picture of Deanna Durbin, who recently passed (April 2013); gossip; movies written out in an unusual story format; and lots of interesting ads for products, some of which no longer exist and concepts that are truly outdated: cigarettes that are a great gift and that are easy on the throat because they're "toasted" and Gary Cooper talking about breaking women like horses, among others.

The table of contents lists Trade Winds, Dawn Patrol, Out West with the Hardys, Dramatic School, There's That Woman Again, Ferdinand the Bull, Topper Takes a Trip, St. Louis Blues, Gossip Glimpses, Movie Story Quiz, The Shining Hour, Heart of the North, Deanna Durbin, Loretta Young, Tyrone Power, Sandra Plays Santa, and Very Personally Yours.

    Hi Signaholic. Right? Those were such simpler times, so innocent in so many ways.
    Glad you like.
