The Daily Scrapbook 11/28/12 Four Page Magazine Article

Here’s today’s flashback:  A four page (!) article from a 1977 movie magazine, (Probably TV Radio Mirror) raving about the Star Trek revival, this time asking if Nimoy and Shatner would be along for the ride.  At the time I thought it would never really be Trek without Mr. Spock, and millions agreed. A lot of great stills here (if some are backward, which always happened in these pieces) The commentary is definitely of the era, with commentary mentioning Hank Aaron, M*A*S*H, and Fonzie.  It appears the writer of the piece had a ball writing this; he or she must have subtly influenced my own style of prose, as it is very giddy with a lot of parenthesis and exclamations, and silly captions!  I remember liking how it described Nimoy as ‘darkly good-looking’.  Must have read it a hundred times.  I think that I was happy that a ‘major’ magazine was taking Trek seriously. But I just can’t take Shatner seriously in  that white prom tux and super collar!
