Screenland: a magazine of Young Ideas was a monthly U.S. magazine about movies, published between September 1920 and June 1971,[1] when it merged with Silver Screen. In the September 1952 issue, the name changed to Screenland plus TV-Land.

In was established in Los Angeles, California, with Myron Zobel as the editor in 1922.[citation needed] Frederick James Smith became the editor in 1923 when it moved to Cooperstown, new York.[citation needed] One magazine-collector site credits, without attribution, one Paul Hunter, "with rescuing Screenland magazine for John Cuneo back in 1932."[2]

In October 1952, Ned Pines' Standard Magazines, an imprint of Pines Publications, purchased Silver Screen and Screenland from the Henry Publishing company.[3] Pines announced in June 1954 that he was suspending publication with the August 1954 issue, citing production and distribution costs.[4] The magazine continued publication through 1971, however.

In 1923 the magazine reported a love affair between Evelyn Brent and Douglas Fairbanks, resulting in legal threats, and a retraction.[5]
