Cool Actor of the Week Follow-Up: Caroline Munro Returns!

cmFeatured2

One of the most popular posts we’ve ever done here at Cheese Magnet was our Cool Actor of the Week feature on the lovely Caroline Munro. ScottD suggested a follow-up, and I thought it might be cool to scan all my old “Unofficial Fans of Caroline Munro Fan Club” newsletters, along with some of the photos in my collection.

The fan club stuff dates from 1978 – 1980. Click on the images to get bigger versions so you can read ‘em (same goes for the photos). I’ll try to let the pictures do the talking unless I have a comment to include.

Here’s the first issue of the newsletter — although it may have been a brochure sent out as part of the membership packet rather than an actual issue of the newsletter, now that I think about it:

Page One

Page Two

Page Three

Page Four

Here’s the May/June 1979 newsletter:

Page the First.

And page two.

Imagine my disappointment when I received the November 1979 mailing, which was only one page…

Captain Kronos, Vampire Hunter!

And then the final newsletter I received, laying out some seemingly-unpleasant political machinations behind the scenes…

Stella Star!

I'm pretty sure I owned a shirt just like that.

What — no photo?

Now THAT'S more like it.

Then we have various stills of Caroline. I bought most of these from the guy who ran the fan club, if I remember right.

Best. Vest. Ever.

Fringe is more than just a cool TV series.

Good Heavens.

See? They don't all have to include cleavage.

But then again, cleavage might be nice.

See previous caption.

This last shot ran in an issue of Starlog Magazine:

That is one brown belly.

  1. Wow!!! I wasn’t even aware that that Fan Club had existed! Thanks for scanning these. Outside of the current official fan club I only ever knew of the one that became the Munro Mystique. I had scanned those for my blog starting with this post in case you’re interested:

  2. Very cool! Thanks for sharing these. Like Munro Mystique, I’ve added them to my want list, although it’s nice to be able to enjoy them online since my chances of finding copies are probably pretty slim.

    I have been highlighting some rarities from my Caroline Munro collection on my blog as well:

      Holger and John — glad you enjoyed the newsletter scans, and more than that, I’m glad that after holding onto them for more than 30 years, I can finally share ‘em with other Munro fans! And thanks to both of you for the links to your own sites — great stuff!


  3. Thanks so much for this. The fan club newsletters are amazing. I have the first issue but not the others. This is a very welcome addition of Caroline Munro fandom.
