|The first appearance of Bellamy's Garth in MFG|
|MFG #40 the first Bellamy Garth strip appearance in the USA|
3. My old friend David Jackson mentioned that this reminded him of a Bellamy character...Fraser of Africa. The film is Never So Few and starred Frank Sinatra, Gina Lollobrigida, Steve McQueen amongst many others and was released in 1959. I've read the plot summary and still don't think I've ever seen it. It's actually set in Burma in WWII but knowing Frank & Nancy Bellamy's film-going habit they are likely to have seen it - especially as it featured these three popular actors.

That's all for this time, but I have other 'little bits' to add soon...
