My Weekly Spock: Nimoy on ‘Stoney Burke’

This week for you Nimoy viewing pleasure, I came across a rare and nearly forgotten old series called Stoney Burke.  It stars Jack Lord as the title character; a rodeo rider with a heart of gold long before his Hawaii 5-0 days:  In this episode, titled ‘Fight Night’.  The charity rodeo Stoney is set to ride in is threatened by a prize fight the same night.  The managers of the prize fighter, Art Paxton, send thugs to the rodeo to keep their fight from losing customers. And who is this prize fighter they’re so willing to beat people up for? Well, young, fit, Leonard Nimoy, of course.  (and the director takes full advantage of the young actor’s physique)

You can see the whole episode here.  Nimoy appears around 36 minutes in- draped under a sheet  ala Frankenstein’s monster!
