Pic of the Day: “Beware! No Trespassing” revisited

Today we take another look at the Cowboy G-Men episode “Beware! No Trespassing”. It was first broadcast on November 1, 1952. Evil-doers Benton and Jardine (Robert Lowery) eagerly anticipate the execution of their dastardly plan that involves a tungsten mine.

Beware! No Trespassing - 1952

As I believe I’ve mentioned before, Lowery was the second actor to portray Batman (after a fellow named Lewis Wilson), in a 1949 serial. In 1942 he appeared in a “sex hygiene” training film for the U.S. War Department, warning against the dangers of venereal disease, with none other than the future Superman, George Reeves. Just use your super-powers, fellas!

Pic of the Day: “Ain’t We Got Fun” revisited

Our pic today takes another look at “Ain’t We Got Fun,” the episode of the venerable television crime series The Untouchables that debuted on November 12, 1959. Bootlegger Big Jim Harrington (Ted de Corsia), his moll Renee (Phyllis Coates), and his torpedo Loxie are taking in the act of irreverent comic Johnny Paycheck (Cameron Mitchell). Paycheck is seriously working Loxie’s last good nerve. The big lug can barely restrain himself from punching Johnny’s lights out.

Coates was born Gypsie Ann Evarts Stell in Wichita Falls, Texas. She enjoyed a long career as one of the most lovely and talented television stars of the 1950’s and ’60s. She is perhaps most famous for her portrayal of Lois Lane, intrepid girl reporter, in the Adventures of Superman series opposite George Reeves.
