Sheila James Kuehl

Apologies if some of these are in the wrong order but it's a fascinating and informative interview with the former Sheila James, co-star of THE MANY LOVES OF DOBIE GILLIS and one of my favorite sixties TV girls as seen on a number of TV series.

George Reeves as Clark Kent

Happy birthday to one of my earliest heroes, George Reeves, seen here in his iconic Clark Kent role. As played by Reeves, Kent was hardly meek or mild and, in fact, would have looked and no doubt felt at home in film noir mysteries of the 1940s and 1950s. He was a crusading reporter, quick with a quip, loyal to his friends, honest to a fault, a tough guy when he needed to be and just an all around nice fellow!

Of course Clark did have ONE little secret.
