SPACE PATROL BOOK by Jean-Noel Bassior. Jean-Noel Bassior needs your help for a new book about Space Patrol. The following information was forwarded to the Academy by Jean-Noel.
In 1986 I told the story of Space Patrol in the first two issues of Filmfax magazine - but there's even more to tell, so I'm expanding my articles in Filmfax into a comprehensive book on the show. If Space Patrol touched your life, I'd like to know how. I welcome your thoughts, memories, feelings, comments on every aspect of the show. I'm particularly interested in how it impacted your life, both as a child and as an adult. For example, did it give you a code of ethics you still hold today?
Also, I'm asking fans what they'd most like to know about Space Patrol, so I can be sure to cover it in the book. This can include questions about the actors (Ed Kemmer is the only surviving member of the cast), writers (Norm Jolley and Lou Huston are in great shape, in their 80s), technical stuff, premiums. . . Please let me know.
