Trivia

During the height of the 3-D craze in the early-1950s, "Space Patrol" broadcast television's first experiment with three-dimensional imagery, in the 1953 episode "The Theft of the Rocket Cockpit." Viewers were encouraged in advance to buy specially packaged Ralston-Purina cereals that included 3-D viewing glasses. See more »

I still have the Life Magazine that featured Space Patrol
8 October 2006 | by mmoore98See all my reviews

The headline of that month was of Ernest Hemingway and a short version of The Old Man and the Sea.

It explained that a WWII fighter pilot had thought the whole thing up while flying raids in the Pacific during the War. He and two other writers were cranking out 85,000 words a week to keep the show running. It had a lot of the behind the scenes stories of the actors, etc. Some of the actors in this series died from Cancer at relatively early ages, and some were destitute. Nina Bara, from Argentina, was one of them. She had been married to Dwight Eisenhower's golf pro (also a relatively obscure actor himself) from Austraila for about five years...until Ike was out of power, then his popularity as an actor waned quickly. I understand he's still alive. She died in poverty.
