“Boy’s Cinema & Modern Boy” Movie Magazine – only for boys?

Apparently, in 1939 only boys, and “modern” boys at that, enjoyed watching exciting crime movies at the cinema! 

From the archives of Media History Digital Library“Boy’s Cinema & Modern Boy” movie magazine featuring one of the Universal “Crime Club” series, Inside Information (1939), with Dick Foran, Harry Carey, June Lang, and Mary Carlisle. 

Heavens to Betsy! Can’t have our “modern” girls watching that spine-tingling stuff, can we?
