The front page has: "Poitier, Neal, 'Tom Jones' Receive Academy Awards", which continues on page 4.  Sidney Poitier, who came from very humble beginnings, was the 1st American American man to win an Academy Award. Although there is no accompanying image, detailed content on his rags to riches story is included.
Additionally, the front page has a image and accompanying article on the four astronauts chosen for the 1st Gemini space flight.
Believed complete in 10 pages, however this issue is being sold for the described content.  In nice condition with a small amount of fold wear and some edge browning.
