50% OFF...A tell-all magazine of the mid-'50s. Each page has wonderful photographs (many obviously fake) and completely stupid but funny titles. The magazine's oft-repeated slogan, appearing in Bull's-Eye target format on almost every page throughout the magazine, is "Don't Believe a Word of It - It's Cockeyed". Their endlessly-repeated idea of humor is to poorly paste famous people's heads on other peoples bodies, to accompany articles such as "Who Slipped a Mickey to Spillane", and "Liberace's Wig Maker Tells All!!!". Some later-better-known wits probably were responsible for this, but their efforts here were at best those of half-wits. Generally pretty stupid, but SCARCE!
This is a first edition. The magazine only appeared to last two editions! Featured in this is Marilyn Monroe who's grandmother is exposed as Mae West!
The magazine is in fair vintage condition with a tear at the cover's spine about 5 inches at the top and 1/2" at the bottom. The inside pages are clean and the binding is otherwise tight.
A rare and hilarious vintage rag!
