English musical comedy stars Jack Buchanan, Gertrude Lawrence, and Bea Lillie enjoy the New York American comics, circa 1927.
William ("Hopalong Cassidy") Boyd enjoys a copy of the December 27 1950 issue of the Los Angeles Examiner. His comic strip would be jumping to that paper from the Mirror one week hence.
