The July 24, 1965, issue of TV Guide with a painting of Perry Mason
on the front (above). “Raymond Burr: Alone on a Treadmill,” the
cover line declared. In the feature story, “Pleading His Own Case”
by Dwight Whitney, we learned that Burr took several trips to
Vietnam to entertain the troops as part of the USO. It goes on to
say that during his third trip, the TV star suffered a severe
shoulder injury when the helicopter transporting him came under
fire. (MeTV)

NEWSPAPER GOT IT WRONG ON THIS DAY IN 1948

Harry S. Truman on election night 1948, holding up a copy of the Chicago Daily
Tribune declaring ‘’Dewey Defeats Truman.”

 

On November 3, 1948, the Chicago Tribune jumps the gun and
mistakenly declares
New York Governor Thomas Dewey the
winner of his presidential race with incumbent
Harry S. Truman.

Many of America’s major newspapers had predicted a Dewey
victory early on in the campaign. A New York Times article
editorialized that “if Truman is nominated, he will be forced
to wage the loneliest campaign in recent history.” Perhaps
not surprisingly then, Truman chose not to use the press as
a vehicle for getting his message across. Instead, in July
1948, he embarked on an ambitious 22,000-mile “whistle
stop” railroad and automobile campaign tour.

FIRST EPISODE AIRED ON THIS DAY IN 1960

George Maharis and Martin Milner in Route 66 (1960)

On October 7, 1960, the first episode of the one-hour television
drama “Route 66” airs on CBS. The program had a simple premise:
It followed two young men, Buz Murdock (George Maharis) and
Tod Stiles (Martin Milner), as they drove across the country in
an inherited Corvette (Chevrolet was one of the show’s sponsors),

doing odd jobs and looking for adventure. According to the show’s
creator and writer, Stirling Silliphant (best known for his acclaimed
“Naked City,” an earlier TV series), Buz and Tod were really on a

journey in search of themselves.

“Route 66″was different from every other show on television. For
one thing, it was shot on location all over the U.S. instead of in a
studio. By the time its run was up in 1964, the show’s cast and
crew had traveled from
Maine to Florida and from Los Angeles
to Toronto: In all, they taped 116 episodes in 25 states.

The American Weekly
was a
Sunday newspaper supplement
published by the
Hearst Corporation from November 1, 1896,
until 1966. The name was changed to Pictorial Living in 1963
before it was finally cancelled in 1966. Due to the low quality
of the paper on which it was printed, many issues have been
lost despite the large circulation. As a result, it has become
a collectors item.
