Quasimodo's Monster Magazine #5, Part 3!
We're up to page 42 of this issue of Quasimodo's Monster Magazine, and the article about Lee Majors, who played the Six Million Dollar Man! By now, it should come as no surprise that the article begins with a two-page spread of pictures and titles!
The article itself (author not credited) discusses Lee Majors' career, from his high school and college football days to his first motion picture role in "Will Penny" and other roles.
Page 46 begins the actual interview with Majors, who explains how the TV show originated (amusingly enough, the transcriber of the interview interprets the title "Cyborg" as "Sideboard," and the error is repeated in the same paragraph), and what bionics are. Majors talks about his fans, too.
On page 48, Majors talks about how he went from athletics to acting, and how he met then-wife Farrah Fawcett-Majors. The interview abruptly ends there, with nothing remotely resembling a wrap-up!
As you can see, pages 50 and 51 are "Mini Monster Posters," with pretty poor reproductions, even for newsprint!
Next time around: Don Wigal reviews "Heroes of the Horrors" -- yes, the same book authored by the subject of an earlier article in the issue! Plus, Monster Mesh Puzzles!
