Philp Belbin Film Adaption - Out Of The Past

For a brief period during 1948 and 1949 Phil Belbin produced comic adaptions of RKO Radio pictures for Murray magazine Cavalcade. Adaptions included Return of the Badman, Fort Apache, Magic Town, Night Song, Rachel and the Stranger, The Bishop's Wife,The Velvet Touch, If You Knew Suzie, The Miracle of the Bells and Out of the Past. The film adaptions were replaced in late 1949 with original comics featuring Flash Cain, Private Detective, illustrated by Belbin and written by Ray Heath. These were subsequently replaced by Kath King of Kismet Cove, the adventures of a female reporter, illustrated by Belbin and scripted by Sydney Ockenden.
