My Weekly Spock: Telethon Man

Leonard did a Variety Club Telethon in 1970 in Vancouver Canada, and another 1973.  His hair is so short in the earlier one I believe because he was filming Assault on the Wayne at the time.  Always compassionate for his fellow man, Leonard did a lot of charity work.  Just another reason to love him!

  2. Well, being pictures for a newspaper, they were probably in black and white — but I bet his overcoat was camel-colored! 🙂
