The title was one of several of its day featuring fictional adventures of real-life stars. Alan Ladd (1913-1964) starred in detective and Western films, among many others—usually as the tough romantic lead. Among his best-known films were This Gun for Hire (1942) and Shane (1953). Several of the comic-book issues had photo covers.
