As we enter our 8th year of publishing, we'd like to thank each of our loyal readers for helping us keep the dream alive. It's not easy maintaining a magazine in the age of the internet, but we continue to thrive thanks to our many readers throughout the world. A very special thanks to those of you who subscribe to Cinema Retro. Frankly, there is no greater way of helping us out (unless you have a few million bucks laying around that you'd like to donate). Every subscription goes a long way to ensuring that we'll be able to maintain the high standards you've come to expect- with a minimum amount of advertising. We've also been able to maintain our pricing without a single increase in eight years, despite soaring costs for printing and mailing. Every issue will continue to be a limited edition collector's item. In fact with the closing of Borders stores in the USA, readers have even more reason to subscribe. Not only does this limit the number of venues you can buy Cinema Retro from, but we've also adjusted our print runs accordingly, meaning that every issue is more limited than ever since we are no longer supplying Borders.So thanks to all our subscribers- especially those who have so promptly renewed their subscriptions! By doing so, you have ensured you won't have to pay the sky high prices that sold out issues of Cinema Retro have been commanding on eBay (up to $150 in some cases!)
We'd also like to especially thank the many talented writers, actors, producers and directors who contribute to our magazine. Our regular staffers do a tremendous job of bringing many forgotten films to the fore- and our celebrity contributors go a long way in explaining why Cinema Retro is now widely read in the film industry in both America and England. Just some of the people who have contributed to us in the past gives you an idea of why we're humbled by their support:
Sir Roger Moore, Sir Christopher Lee, Michael York, Norman Jewison, William Shatner, Robert Vaughn, David V. Picker, Elke Sommer, Hugh Hefner, Karen Black, Malcolm McDowell, Joe Dante, Roger Corman, David McCallum, Ernest Borgnine, Barbara Bouchet, Sir Ken Adam, Sir Christopher Frayling, Lalo Schifrin, Richard Kiel, Caroline Munro, Shirley Anne Field, Lewis Gilbert, Guy Hamilton, Luciana Paluzzi, Angie Dickinson, James Caan, Michael Winner as well as such late, great talents as Don Knotts, Cliff Robertson and Jeremy Slate.
For those of you who are among the tens of thousands of people who read this web site every day, why not take the plunge and give the magazine a try? Purchasing one issue won't make a dent in your wallet and you might become addicted.
There is plenty of excitement in store for season 8 of Cinema Retro beginning with our eye-popping cover girl for issue #22, Sybil Danning. As usual, this issue will be eclectic in terms of content: major examinations of Jack Cardiff's great adventure film Dark of the Sun (aka The Mercenaries) and special features on two Cinerama epics: Krakatoa, East of Java and Sir Christopher Frayling's magnificent study of the making of How the West Was Won. In the next twelve months, other major features will include John Boorman's Deliverance, the films of Elvis Presley, the history of movie comic book tie-ins and rare back lot photos from the James Bond films.
So get on board the Cinema Retro bandwagon and enjoy the most unique film magazine in the world- dedicated to the celebration of films from the 1960s and 1970s.
