Beginning in 1964, Bantam Books began reprinting the 1930's and '40's DOC SAVAGE pulps with surprising popularity. Actor Chuck Conners was reportedly scheduled to play the Man of Bronze in a movie in 1966, of which this sole issue of a God Key comic book from that year was meant to be a tie-in. The film was never made.
You can find an article about the Doc Savage movie that ALMOST was made (including who was probably going to play who) here... http://heroheroinehistory.blogspot.com/2011/04/doc-savage-1960s-movie-that-almost-was.htmlReplyDelete
Let's not forget the Doc Savage movie that was made starring Ron Ely. Sure it was campy, even corny, but as a child when I saw it, I thought it was pretty cool. And who doesn't love the John Philip Sousa soundtrack?ReplyDelete
Don't forget the classic James Bama book covers !ReplyDelete
