4 Shots From 4 Films: Rest in Peace, David Hedison

4 Shots From 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking. David Hedison (1927-2019) was a working actor for over 70 years, starring on stage, screen, and TV. Though he played in virtually every genre, Hedison is perhaps best known for his work in some classic science-fiction, as well as portraying CIA agent Felix Leiter in two James Bond films. Word as hit the internet he passed away July 18 at the age of 93, and in his honor, we present 4 Shots from the Films of David Hedison. Job well done, sir!

The Spectacular Adventures of G-8 And His Battle Aces

G-8 was a heroic aviator and spy during World War I.  For 11 years, from 1933 to 1944, G-8 starred in his pulp magazine, G-8 And His Battle Aces.  Because G-8 was an aviator, he had several adventures like this:

However, the majority of G-8’s adventures were more like this one:

G-8’s adventures were outlandish even by the standards of the pulp era.  Below are the covers for some of his most spectacular adventures.  Though I’m not a 100% sure, I think all of these covers can be credited to Frederick Blakeslee.
