Here’s some videos of the famous week of appearances by William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy on Dick Clark’s $20,000 Pyramid in 1977! (I’m guessing the Pyramid amount doubled for inflation!)
As I mentioned in today’s Daily Scrapbook, Nimoy was a great player and had played this several times, Bill was…well, Bill, and he famously throws a chair at one point! I’m very grateful to the videographer Hondo, who resuscitated these. The quality isn’t great, but they’re still enjoyable!
Warning, Shatner wears some eye-scarring 70’s qiana shirts! Nimoy is ever cool, of course 😉 The first clip begins with a flashback of Nimoy hugging an ecstatic contestant 🙂
