Thanks so much for checking about the Mojo Nov. issue.
I had opened the sealed copy of PEOPLE before the magazines hit the grocery stores!
It has been a long, long time since a magazine totally dedicated to Glen Campbell was published, hasn't it? I am certain you remember the TV Mirror magazine published around 1969 with GC's life story and many early photos. Each chapter was named after a city Glen had lived in; very clever. Also, another fan magazine was published in 1969 with a press photo for "True Grit" on the front cover and a lengthy article with photos that summarized the film's story. However, I don't think the TG magazine was completely dedicated to TG because I had cut the front cover and article from my copy of the magazine to clip into a GC scrapbook. Aarrrrggg!!! Now, I wish I hadn't cut up the mag. Still, I feel fortunate to have that article. (I did the same thing with the two TV Guide covers with GC and a couple of the later People magazine covers/articles.) Were there any other magazines dedicated entirely to GC during his career?
Here's a magazine story for you...at the start of a school day in 1969, either in May or June, I walked into my elementary school classroom and saw that every desktop had a copy of the latest Weekly Reader (an educational magazine for children) on it. I walked over to my desk, picked up my copy of the Weekly Reader and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the front cover; Glen's
picture was on it! My idol! He was pictured with John Wayne and Kim Darby from a scene in "True Grit". The magazine had an article in it about the film as well as other non-True Grit articles. When I think about this Weekly Reader now, it surprises me that True Grit was being pitched to children because of the violence in the movie. On the other hand, it just goes to show that True Grit was a huge
film in 1969, heavily publicized and very popular.
Fortunately, this magazine was safe from my scissors. I still have my intact copy.
