Sept. 22, 2011: Harlan-Ward Wedding

It's been over two weeks since I added any ads, but I do have 18 more to add today, all from June, 1962, plus two more additions to the Random Pages gallery from the Friday, 6/15/62 Blade Peach Section. The first story is about channel 11's upcoming coverage of the wedding of Romper Room's Connie Harlan and channel 11 newscaster Gordon Ward. The second srory is an AP report on a three-year pay-tv experiment in Hartford, Conn. There are eight ads in the the Channel 11 gallery for movies on The Big Show, Night Owl Theater and Hollywood Spectacular. There's a Thursday, 6/7/62 ad for "The High and the Mighty," "Rio Grande" (John Wayne) and "Tarzan's Revenge," a Friday, 6/8/62 ad for "Tarzan's Revenge" and "Dam Busters" (Richard Todd) and a Saturday, 6/9/62 ad for Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" (Robert Walker).

There's a Wednesday, 6/6/62 ad for "The Thing" and "Caribbean" (John Payne) and a Thursday, 6/7/62 ad for "Embraceable You" (Dane Clark) and "The Judge Steps Out" (Ann Sothern). There's also a Friday, 6/8/62 ad for Ripcord and "White Heat" on Weekend Spectacular, a Saturday, 6/9/62 ad for Tiger Baseball (Detroit at Washington) and "Possessed" on Weekend Spectacular and a Sunday, 6/10/62 ad for another Tigers-Senators baseball game, "The Wonderful Country" on ABC's Hollywood Special (Robert Mitchum, Julie London) and "Cry Havok" (Ann Sothern) again on Weekend Spectacular.

There's one more in the the Channel 13 News gallery, a Monday, 6/11/62 ad for Deadline and Warren Guthrie and the News. The last ad is in the Other Vintage ads gallery. It's a Wednesday, 6/6/62 ad inviting people to shop Downtown Toledo for Father's Day. It will be a while before I post again, but more vintage ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
