The Daily Scrapbook 10/18/12 Jimmy Doohan comes to town!

Here’s today’s flashback:  From March of 1977, James Doohan appeared locally at Binghamton University (then known as Harpur College, SUNY Binghamton) and amazingly, I did not go to this show!  (at least I don’t remember going!) Maybe seeing him at the NYC convention was enough?   This is a charming interview, and Jimmy is  humble and happy with his life.  He says that people wouldn’t want him to spout Shakespeare, but I think he would have been great in Macbeth or The Taming of the Shrew!  Great guy, well missed. 😦

And more questions, this time wondering if Bill Shatner liked that newfangled english Sci-Fi show –Space 1999?  (Anyone here watch that? it was fun)

  2. Hi Lee, Yeah! I wonder that too! Maybe I was out of town or I couldn’t get a ride? I’ll never remember why I didn’t go, but I’m glad I got to see him at the convention!
