Bonus Video– From 1973 — Nimoy hosts A.M. New York, interviews Philippe Halsman

A little shout-out to Scrapper (that’s my nickname for all who follow this blog) Winston, who referred me to this delicious tidbit of Mr. Nimoy hosting a New York City morning talk show in 1973 called “A.M. New York”. I have never seen this and in all my years of watching Nimoy, I never knew about this! However, Win, take note that this was filmed in ’73, which was four years before Nimoy’s Broadway work in Equus.   So this was sometime after Mission Impossible and sometime around The Alpha Caper, (hence the scruffiness).   You can see here how budding photographer Nimoy is totally enamored of legendary photographer Halsman, and probably (accidentally) ignores the legendary, funny Kaye Ballard!  (Maybe her segment was earlier? Kaye, if you’re reading this, let us know!)

  1. Ah, that is interesting. And in fact I was up the creek because I hadn’t meant Equus, I’d meant Full Circle, the other Broadway play he was in. Which would also have explained the scruffiness! But yes, this wasn’t Equus time, but I’ve glad you’ve now seen this glorious piece of TV!

  2. No big deal- it got me researching! Ah, Full Circle, I’m hoping to find pictures from that and other stage shows for a future ‘Weekly Spock’. Thanks again for this little treasure! What a find! If anymore of these turn up on the net, please e-mail me here, Thanks!
