Trivia For The Night

I am not one to post many trivia type questions, but I just found out something about one of my favorite magazines of my childhood (my favorite from about 8 years old through my early teenage years). I would like to share that trivia with all of you, but only if someone can guess it correctly - and please do so without cheating, and without looking at the comments section first to see if someone else has guessed it already. Try to answer the question, then leave a comment with the answer you had in mind, not effected by an answer someone else already gave.

Who was the first man to be pictured on the cover of Playboy Magazine?

This is not a trick question, and the answer may surprise some of you, it sure did me. Somehow though, the more I think of it, the more I see him as having been the perfect first for that honor. He often played the role of playboy, and he surely had some gorgeous wives, but that is more than enough for the hints.


The first person to get it right has my heartfelt admiration as a true trivia buff (that of course so long as you don't cheat and that is totally up to you). In other words I have no prizes for this.

Oh by the way - just give it a guess even if you never would look at something like Playboy. The fun is figuring out who such a mag would have as its first man on the cover - a difficult guess if you are not a Playboy fan, or a fan of this actor (an maybe even if you are a fan of his).

All the best,

Well since I have a couple of you guessing, think along the lines of a a guy who played: a thief, a detective, a queen, a Group Captain, the president of the USA, a gardener, a role in a James Bond movie and played James Bond in the plot, a martial arts expert, a doctor, a playboy, a leader who won the war instead of losing it as planned and conquered the United States of America along the way. He was a man who could walk on water - at least in one of his roles!

All the best,
