TV Star Parade

A friend sent me a vintage fan magazine from July, 1963.   She knows me so well!  Every page is a treat, even the back pages, with ads for everything from toasters to suppositories.  I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite articles and ads.

Cover July 1963

The cover features Connie Stevens and Donna Douglas

James Drury

This issue doesn’t have any articles about my current favorite, Robert Fuller, but western actor James Drury gets a page.

This photo of Max Baer drinking eggnog (left) freaks me out.

Star Photo Ad

Lists of stars from the past always fascinate me.  I also love how all the photos are FREE, but be sure to include 10 cents for each one, to cover mailing and handling costs!  I looked it up, and postage per ounce in 1963 was 5 cents.  That means someone who ordered 25 prints was paying enough to ship over three pounds.  Either the photos were really big, really heavy, or not very free after all.  And yet, I wish I could still order some now.

More to come!
