TV Guide issue April 21-27, 1956 (1956)

This is an issue of TV Guide for the week of April 21-27, 1956. The magazine features actress Nanette Fabray on the cover known for her work on Sid Ceasar’s Your Show of Shows and, later, on the TV series One Day at a Time. However, the real reason this is in my collection is because within this magazine is a full-page ad for the TV series The Adventures of Superman. The artwork is simplistic but does resemble George Reeves. The text below contains the call-to-action “Don’t miss the exciting adventures of Clark Kent — mild mannered newspaper reporter — who is actually Superman in disguise.”

Incidentally, the Superman episode that aired for the first time this week was “Topsy Turvy”.

What are your thoughts about the collection?
