This is certainly an unusual piece of memorabilia, a fan magazine produced way back in 1956. This just went on sale at eBay -

This is - as to be expected - very rare; it was before the internet, before personal computers; so, probably a bare minimum copies were produced (by typewriter & mimeograph) and even less survive to this point:

I also wonder about the picture of Chuck Heston on front - I don't recognize it;
it can be narrowed down to from the 1st half of the fifties...

Also, check out the B&W Stills pasted into the mag - how quaint:

Wow - what a blast from the past. I remember those Hestonian circulars doing the rounds in the early 1960's FILM REVIEW Collector's Corner section.

By the way, that photo of Heston on the cover of The Hestonian is a publicity still from LUCY GALLANT.

Thanks, James - as before, I figured you'd be the one to know. 8-)

That's one of the coolest things I've ever seen! Too bad the back cover is missing. 10 bucks (or offer) is a steal!

Anyone here plan on buying it?
