CBS SPIDER-MAN! Nick Hammond Recalls Days as Peter Parker! 1979 MarvelMania!

With all this talk and tintinnabulation about the AVENGERS, and the upcoming big-screen SPIDER-MAN movie re-boot, let's look back to the late 70s, when Marvel Comics ruled the small screen! Here, from a kid-friendly tiny tome called "TV '79," actor Nick Hammond (who portrayed both Peter Parker and Spidey, natch) talks about his days as a young thespian, his background, and his role as the wondrous Web-Spinner! Although the SPIDER-MAN prime-time CBS series only lasted a handul of episodes (led by a very well-done 90-minute pilot film), it's still well-recalled by fans far and wide! Click to enlarge!

BONUS! Click below for two power-packed 1978 TV GUIDE features! First up: The sensational SPIDER-MAN stuntman Fred Waugh is profiled, as he prepares to peddle up the preeminent Empire State Building for a pandemonium-producing wall-crawling performance! And, an actual ad for the SPIDER-MAN "Captive Tower" episode of the CBS show!
