Trivia

Back when Radio Shack (then a div. of Tandy Corp.) was a large and growing nationwide and even worldwide retail chain, they obtained the rights to the brand name "Space Patrol" for their toy-level walkie-talkies, even using kids in space helmets in their ads for these products. This was back in the '60's and undoubtedly had to do with the still "fresh" recognition of this TV series. 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.
