My Weekly Spock 8/19/13 Night Gallery “She’ll be Company For You”

In a 1972 episode of Rod Serling’s Night Gallery, Nimoy played Henry Auden, a recent widower who isn’t too upset that his invalid wife Margaret has passed away.  Although he loved her, he can’t help feeling mildly relieved at his  freedom from his constant care of his late wife.  A creepy friend of Margaret’s gets him a cat who’ll ‘be company for him’, but Henry is slowly driven crazy between still hearing the bell his wife used to ring, and a sneaking suspicion that this little kitty is actually a wild cat out to kill him…  The episode also co-starred Kathryn Hayes, whom Trek fans will recognize as “Gem” from The Empath (I always like it when actors get to work more than once together in different venues).  Here, they argue and almost kiss. (It always seemed to be ‘almost’ or no kissing for Nimoy whenever he appeared in these ’70’s shows;  maybe the TV execs were afraid his fans would simultaneously combust a the sight…)  Even though Nimoy’s character here wasn’t the nicest, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for his fate.  Ironically, Nimoy’s always been an animal lover in reality, but not here!

#32 “Friday’s Child”

In the spirit of completely misleading 1960’s movie posters, it seemed logical to present Friday’s Child as a comedy! (This was totally inspired by the ridiculous REAL publicity picture of Kirk and Eleen!)   Two posters in two days, I guess I’m on a roll!  It also mildly references Three Men and a Baby, which as you know was directed by Mr. Nimoy in the 1980’s.

Trek Poster # 31: “Metamorphosis”

Hey Kids,

Been a while since I’ve done one of these!  This was a tricky episode to present, but I think I managed okay.   I hope to eventually finish the whole series — Enjoy! –  Therese

The Daily Scrapbook Media Spotlight Part IV “The Robots of Star Trek”

Here’s today’s flashback — more of Media Spotlight from 1977.  This time it’s The Robots of Star Trek, by Howard Phillips. Mostly basic outlines of the robot based episodes of Trek, and a couple of great publicity shots too.

My Weekly Spock 8/12/13 “Kid Monk Baroni” Part II

Here’s the rest of my stills from Kid Monk Baroni – Enjoy!

Baroni’s bummed at being ‘the gorilla’ who’s always beaten up in the ring, so Baroni’s girlfriend Emily helps him to get plastic surgery and boom- he’s Mr. Charming! But the good looks turn him into a jerk too — he cheats on Emily with floozie June,  and is too afraid to fight hard and wreck his pretty face!  He agrees to fight dirty to make ends meet again, but in the end, loses the fight but wins the respect of his old pal (Jimmy Olsen!–that is, Jack Larson as Angelo) and gets his girlfriend back.  Unfortunately, we only hear that he’s married his girlfriend, and the final scene is spent on silly sight gag of one of his former gang members who liked to hide stuff in his long coat!

The Daily Scrapbook: 8/9/13 Media Spotlight Part III

Hey kids, I figured out why I couldn’t upload more pictures yesterday; My site had finally run out of space for new files!!!   It’s all fixed now, with even more GB storage (and a chunk out of my checking account) — I might have to set up a donation button!

Here’s today’s flashback: More from Media Spotlight, including a review of the classic Forbidden Planet and an order form for membership in the “Brotherhood of Vulcan”!   ( I always wondered if Roddenberry and William Ware Theiss got the idea of short mini-dresses for the female Enterprise uniforms from this movie!
