Title: Cinema X (NSFW)
Post by: Jonny on 01 May 2008 - 13:00
Noticed mocked up copies of this mag on a news stand in Dallamano's 'Dorian Gray' the other day...

Which got me thinking about the mag, does anyone have any copies of it? I've not seen any for sale for ages.

I have a few copies - Francis Brewster who runs the pre-cert forums and works for FAB Press has a complete set. They are invaluable for finding good quality pictures from rare and unseen films. Some of the film titles are "in production' titles, some of which were changed for the films' release.

I've probably got about ten or so issues. I'll get the camera out on the weekend and get some pics up on here.

Cool! Look forward to seeing the pics.

How many issues were there?

Take a look here:

Cinema X (UK) edition) (http://www.moviemags.com/main.php?title=CINEMA%20X%20UK&etos=%)

It was published in other countries too. Each issue sells for around £10 - £15 nowadays.

I've got a few issues that they haven't pictured there.

The first few years the mag was quite thick and heavy. A couple of the later issues I have are quite anorexic in comparison - perhaps about 32 pages or so.

Interesting to see that it was first published in 1969 the same year that Dallamano's film came out.

Brilliant stuff!

Hadn't heard of 'The Nympho' with Dagmar Lassander before!

I'm going to have to look out for some of these.  :'(

Hadn't heard of 'The Nympho' with Dagmar Lassander before!


This was issued on UK pre-cert tape as ANDREA THE NYMPHO. Actual on-screen title is simply ANDREA. I sent her a copy of this back in the early 90s as she hadn't seen it since she made it!

Nice, very nice indeed!

I just bought my first copy of this mag off eBay last night. I'll put some pictures up when it arrives. I must say I do prefer the old school logo on your editions Kev!

Francis Brewster who runs the pre-cert forums and works for FAB Press has a complete set.


I sent Francis a PM on the Pre-Cert forum today asking whether the magazine featured in 'Dorian Gray' was an actual issue or just a mock up, a friend I was speaking to today thought it was real hence me asking Francis to try and answer...

Answer he did, with a few facts about the mag's history thrown in for good measure. Nice chap indeed.

"Hi Jonny, the first issue of Cinema X was published in March 1969 and it ran for 96 issues (8 volumes of 12) until February 1977. There were also some compendium issues (2 or 3 copies bound together) variously titled Cinema Extra, Cinema Xtra, Cinema Xtra-Special and Cinema X Super-X Special!

The original logo was used until Vol. 4 No. 9 when it changed to 'Cinema X'. The colours changed from issue to issue, but the most likely source for the one used for Dorian Gray is Vol. 1 No. 2 which has the yellow background, black X, and red Cinema. They've just mocked one up with a picture of Helmut Berger.

Fuck. 96 issues? That means I've got 83 more to go!

Got my magazine today, has  more Euro stuff in it than I first thought.

This one with Marisa Mell and Sylvia Koscina must be José Antonio Nieves Conde's 'Historia de una traición'?

There's some coverage of Anita Strindberg in 'The Tropic of Capricorn' but the photos are a bit blurry so I didn't bother with those.

Saw these two copies on eBay, both were BIN's and I couldn't resist. The first one said in the description about it containing info on SO SWEET, SO PERVERSE so that was an easy choice.

(http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f22/lovelockandload/cinema%20x/P6280068.jpg)


The second copy I bought blind though the fact is was a bumper 'double' issue made the decision slightly easier.

Fucking over the moon when it arrived to find it had an English language interview with Edwige Fenech in it! Interviewed by Luigi Cozzi in 1970 when she was just 22!

You jammy fucker! How much were they?
Title: Re: Cinema X (NSFW)
Post by: Jonny on 28 Jun 2008 - 09:34
£20 for both inc. P&P If the double issue had listed in the description about the Edwige interview I'd have happily bid up to and over £20 for that issue alone so I'm well pleased.

I saw them as BIN's and knew if I didn't snap them up they'd be gone the next time I looked.

Haven't had chance to read through them both properly yet but if I find anything else of interest I'll put some more pictures up.

I'll transcribe that Edwige interview and post that later too.

Picked up a couple more issues for £5.50 each the other day. Some interesting interviews in one of them which I'll add to the site over the next few days.

Can't believe it's been so long since I picked up any of these. Might start looking out for them again, I wonder if we offered Francis Brewster some cash he'd let us scan his complete set?

In the meantime, here's a couple of cover scans...

These all look fantastic.I've been meaning to buy some for ages now but just never get around to it,there's always some issue or other of CINESEX,BIGFILM etc that catches my eye and bank balance instead!
Title: Re: Cinema X (NSFW)
Post by: Jonny on 16 Jun 2011 - 10:46
Just got these two rather cheaply off eBay, both about £2 each. The Cinema X is from 1970 and although a bit tatty has some treasure inside. There's some coverage of Edwige Fenech in Eberhard Schröder's Madame und ihre Nichte, Lenzi's A Quiet Place to Kill/Paranoia mentioned here with the title Inquest and hiding at the back and interview with Fernando Di Leo! Cinema Blue (published 1976) has a huge interview with Jean Rollin plus loads of other euro related porn stuff. I'll transcribe the interviews in due course and stick them up so you can all have a read...

I've got a huge stack of Cinema X's and Cinema Blues. They were also published in other countries (such as Sweden) as well.
