FLASH GORDON SERIALS ~ Scarce KING FEATURES PRESSKIT w/RAYMOND ART + STILL + EPISODE SYNOPSES!

$125.00

*At one point in the 1970’s I was the only professional comedian in North Carolina.  I produced a TV show on Channel 3, WBTV, in Charlotte, N.C. – It was a take-off on the old Shock Theater concept that featured live bits and guests along with movies and each week a serial chapter or old TV show like SGT. BILKO or DOBIE GILLIS.  This was long before cable and most of these shows had not been seen for a very long time.  We went live on Friday nights at 11:30 and actually beat Johnny Carson in the ratings.

*This lot is for the King Features presskit that was sent to me when I booked the 3 Flash serials. It contains synopses sheets for the serials, a still (could actually be a pretty old one), and a wonderful 1965 Alex Raymond Flash Gordon color print on heavy paper stock.  Cover of presskit is a postcard King Features added for key-art.  Even includes a hand-written sheet of my notes – you’re getting all I had from the show.

*Since you’ve stuck with me this far, I’ll tell you one more Flash story.  One of our biggest promotions on the show while programming the Flash serials was a MING THE MERCILESS LOOK-ALIKE CONTEST.  We asked those in the audience to submit prizes.  I seeded the action with a 5-pound jalapena cheese loaf I got from a buddy in the National Guard who was a cheese salesman.   The audience-donated list of prizes became so long and crazy we couldn’t read it on the air without cracking up.  When I first met my wife’s family in Union, South Carolina (now Mom of Mom and Pop), I was a celebrity – her cousin Bob had won an honorary mention in the MING contest – and I was a shoe-in with my new folks-to-be!

*Size of still and Raymond art is 8 x 10 inches each.

*I would date the Presskit as 1960’s-1970’s.

*Overall Condition is Excellent!

*Comes with COA from the Museum of Mom and Pop Culture / Adler Collection to ensure authenticity and provenance ~
