My Weekly Spock: OMG!

Well, here’s one I’ve NEVER seen!  Prime Nimoy in the 1950’s!  Thanks to Monica Reinoso for finding this!!!

UPDATE:  It’s on eBay for a few more days and the price is skyrocketing! (Thanks Bobbie!) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Trek-Icon-Leonard-Nimoy-Vintage-1950s-Early-Career-Portrait-Photograph-Rare/292377986411?hash=item441316056b:g:REYAAOSwywRaOonc

My Weekly Spock: Good Old Getty

Going through my files, I found many a picture of Leonard owned by Getty Images, so here’s a nice selection.  Leonard with Susan, Performing in the 1960s, and posing for publicity pics.  I never knew him, but I just miss his beautiful humanity.

The only thing that bugs me about this picture is that it’s always posted backward! (note hair is parted wrong and wedding ring on ‘right’ hand), but hey it’s still Leonard. 🙂

 

My Weekly Spock: That Smile!

I think it’s always good to start the week off with a smile! Leonard had such a warm, genuine smile 🙂

My Weekly Spock – Any Requests?

“Hello, I’m Spock! I’ll be your entertainment for the evening.  May I start with Vulcan love sonnet?”  Great promo shot from ’66

My Weekly Spock: Nimoy as McMurphy in “…Cuckoo’s Nest”

Did you know that May is National Mental Health Month?  Such an important condition, and one that its own sufferers are often too ashamed to get help for fear of being stigmatized.  Never neglect a loved one who is going through their own personal hell; they need all the help they can get.

On a lighter note, here’s Leonard in his 1974 stage performance as Randall McMurphy, the wrongly institutionalized patient in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.  Boy I would have loved to see this.

(and yeah, it helps that he’s just in a towel…)

My Weekly Spock: Stripes Suit Spock and Leonard!

Just came across these shots of Leonard in a favorite striped tie, and Spock got to wear a striped tie too! (but that hat, no!)

My Weekly Spock – As the Snow Flies…

Hi Kids,

As I write this we are at 2+ feet of snow outside my door!  (I live in NYS)  This is a whopper of a storm, so naturally I thought I should feature Spock and company in a snowy backdrop today!  Stay warm my fellow storm-bearers!

Poor Sulu. Apparently in The Enemy Within, The Enterprise forgot it had shuttlecrafts!

Spock kisses the howling wind in All Our Yesterdays.

You know it’s cold when your extremities turn white!
