I wish this was longer! Leonard on a campaign trip for Governor George McGovern in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1972! He made a lot of these trips during that year, and I’ve been coming across many pics from this era. I’ll post some soon in the My Weekly Spock column next week, but for now, enjoy that beautiful deep voice of yore.
For all our Mothers, here and above, our hearts are filled with your sweet love
Leonard and his beloved Mom. Dora.
Did you know that May is National Mental Health Month? Such an important condition, and one that its own sufferers are often too ashamed to get help for fear of being stigmatized. Never neglect a loved one who is going through their own personal hell; they need all the help they can get.
On a lighter note, here’s Leonard in his 1974 stage performance as Randall McMurphy, the wrongly institutionalized patient in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Boy I would have loved to see this.
(and yeah, it helps that he’s just in a towel…)
Finally getting back into posting after a couple of very busy months between work and being sick! (I’m feeling great today!)
My friend Karen found these fantastic candid photos of actress Arlene Martel prepping for her role as T’Pring in Amok Time, as well as a secondary promo pic of she and Leonard (they look thisclose to kissing!) I’m including the more common promo shot of T’Pring and Spock glancing at each other too) What a find! I can never get enough of rare TOS shots! She’s just adorable as she shows off her ears and wig! Lovely Arlene ❤ Missed.
In his inimitable retro style, artist Ale Giorgini takes on the Star Trek crew!
This past Monday (4/10) was National Siblings Day, so what better time to remember wee Leonard and his big brother Melvin?
Not to mention those two men who loved him like a brother; Bill Shatner and DeForest Kelley ❤
Therese with the marvelous cast of Jesus Christ Superstar. (I’m the hippie with the white daisies in my hair, 2nd row 3rd from left)
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been busy the past couple of months as a cast member in a local production of Jesus Christ Superstar. This weekend is the last three shows, and I gotta tell you, this has be a wonderful adventure for me, and it’s a joy to get back into a little acting again! I’m in the ensemble for the piece, and I’m playing everything from a worshiper to a fish merchant to an angel!
Jesus Christ Superstar is the classic rock opera from 1970 penned by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. It brings to life the last week in the life of Jesus and his conflicts with the priests of the Sanhedrin and his disciple Judas. It’s a powerful musical, with classic songs like I Don’t Know How To Love Him, Gethsemane, King Herod’s Song and, of course, the title number.
Our show has been the happiest hard work I’ve ever done! It’s a joy to see it come together from audition to final piece, and I’ve made many lovely new friends.
If any of you live in the Binghamton, NY area, please come check it out! You can read a review here and get tickets here.
I’ll be back next week with Trek stuff. Thanks for your patience! 🙂 -Therese
