"Captain Video"

one of my first favorite tv shows. it ran from 1949-55.

its star was Al Hodge who was born in Ravenna OH & became an alcoholic who died alone at close to the age I am now.

among the many involvd with the series were
Sam Fuller who wrote some episodes prior to his directorial career in feature films
Kenneth Nelson who playd Ranger Colt decades before his role in "Boys in the Band"
Ruth White who did a single episode 16 years before voicing the Motel Keeper in "America Hurrah"
Ernest Borgnine who guest-starrd in 2 episodes 4 years before "Marty"
