The Man From UNCLE board game. Of course there was a board game. I had the lunch box from the late 60’s, this was a hugely popular show, and made Robert Vaughn A huge mid 60s TV star. The show capitalizing on the very popular James Bond movies from the 1960’s, this was a small screen version spy show, very well made that ran from the mid 60’s to about 1968; They had all types of memorabilia attached to the show, and they had a board game. This was an Ideal manufactured game. I don’t remember much of  it. This came was for more adult players. I was 6 or 7 years old at the time of this game.

The Man From UNCLE went of the air in 1968

actors from the 1940s


actors In the decade of the 1940’s, these were some of the most popular actors. Amazingly Kirk Douglas is the only actor still living approaching 100 years old in 2016, and by the early 1940’s Humphrey Bogart finally became a star after being a co star being killed off in just about every film, with is break out hit in High Sierra in 1941, with new comers like Montgomery Clift the studios very carefully working him into the Hollywood machine with is first film, Red River from 1948 co starring John Wayne.

Actors in the 1940’s

Some long time vets still had big box office appeal, like Henry Fonda, Jimmy Stewart, John Garfield, and Spencer Tracy There were new actors that were emerging in a post war Hollywood like Burt Lancaster, and his long time co star Kirk Douglas. African American actors were unfortunately barely on the radar. They were not in starring roles, unless it was a B film with an all Black cast. I was not until Sidney Poitier in the 1950’s to slowly change Hollywood.  We had crooners making films like Frank Sinatra, but the late 40’s getting more starring roles in musicals with Gene Kelly, by the late 40s Marlon Brando was still on Broadway, and soon join his friend Clift in Hollywood in the early 1950s

Burger King, I recall going to this fast food restaurant for the first time maybe in the early 70s, In Norfolk,VA they had very good apple pies. I  remember after swimming at the base pool, being very hungry.  This company started  in 1953 as Insta-Burger King, a Jacksonville, Florida-based restaurant chain. After Insta-Burger King ran into financial difficulties in 1954


Burger King started in Florida

Eerie Magazine I was a big fan when I was a kid in the 70s, and a big fan of a show called Creature Feature. Which came on TV on Saturday, and would only show scary movies. Mostly old movies from the 30s, 40s, and 50s, Like Creature From The Black Lagoon from 1955, Werewolf Of London, and The Mummy ect. The Magazine was pure great Americana, great stories, amazing graphics, and had the simplicity of the Creature Feature show. Eerie was not in my eyes considered a comic book. It was like a scary version of Madd magazine.

Eerie began in 1966 ended in the early 80s, I guess it got out long before the internet, and xBoxes, and iPhones took over the world. Eerie did not last as long as some, but much longer as others, but it left a legacy, and great memories for people my age. Eerie is long gone now, over 30 years gone. I would love to collect some old copies.
