Mary Hartline TV Star When TV Was New Dead at 92

She was often called television’s first sex symbol

She was a very striking presence on “Super Circus”

which aired on ABC Television from 1949 to 1955

Wow! What a blast from the past, Chic! As I recall, a guy named Claude Kirscner (sp) was the ringmaster.

Roger Smith said...

Yes,he was, and Mike Wallace--that Mike Wallace--hawked Peter Pan Peanut Butter.

Don't forget Super Circus' three resident clowns: Cliffy (Clifford Soubier)who also did some of the commercials, Scampy(Sandy Dobritsch) and Nicky (Nicky Francis.)

Mary Hartline's husband was the show's producer.
