To celebrate the milestone 100th issue of FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND, someone (Forry? Jim Warren?) decided to jettison one of the greatest magazine logos ever designed and replace it with this Ringling Brothers/Barnum and Bailey circus poster style monstrosity. Really? Seriously? What did they think they were selling? FAMOUS MONSTERS OF CIRCUS WORLD?

100 issues. 100 covers. This one is hands down the absolute worst of those first landmark 100 issues. Even with the nice Karloff as the Frankenstein Monster painting, this cover sucks.
