Another great candid I bought of Leonard on eBay; this time backstage at Oliver (1972), signing autographs for fans. I would have loved to see him as Fagin in that show! Sometimes when I watch the 1968 Oscar winning movie of the musical, I can imagine how Nimoy might have sung and acted it, But Ron Moody’s performance in the movie is unforgettable!
On another note, sorry I haven’t posted too much lately. We just had a whopper of a snowstorm here! (a bit over a foot). Hope you’re all comfy and well where you are! I’ll post again later this week! Thanks!
What better way to start the week than with a swinging 60’s Leonard?
I bought this beautiful candid photo on eBay. Leonard is wearing a groovy deep red Nehru jacket as he visits back stage at a performance of Macbeth. This was taken almost 50 years ago on January 12, 1969!
I loved the picture and that gentle smile so much, I made a black and white copy too, to see more detail. Leonard was one cool, cultured dude!
“There’s ya problem right there!” Spock gets horizontal with the Enterprise’s guts. A rare publicity still, although odd that those markers are on the rug in front of him! I think they were markers for where the actors to stand?
…something with Spock! Here’s some fun merchandise I’ve found around the ‘net. (old and new)
Art and Collage poster from the 70s
Wallet… or is that a Spollet?
Prototype of Spock bust that unfortunately never produced.
Chubby Blue-Eyed Spock with Mickey Ears????? Nope!
Spock Mug! (or is it a Spug?)
I have no idea. Cupcake??
Clever Spock Mug, but that would be hard to hold!
Terribly cute Spock and Tribbles figure!
I had featured a picture similar to this one back in 2013, but here’s a different picture from the same shoot that I’ve never seen! Someday I’ll find that mosaic if it still exists and get a selfie! Anyone knows if it still exists?
And a reminder, if you’re looking for a fun tee shirt or housewares item, check out my Tee Public page HERE.
I came across this great publicity pic of Leonard that I have never seen before. Dated March 18, 1968 the caption reads:
“Leonard Nimoy…a pointy eared newcomer to our screens.”
This is from a New Zealand TV guide, and it appears that New Zealand got Trek a good two years before neighboring Australia – lucky them! I’m guessing this was taken the same time as the famous ‘Spock holding Enterprise‘ images, but this looks like his ‘lab’ is more set for a plumbing job!
Be sure to check back every Monday for a new Weekly Spock, and be sure to check out the archives for hundred’s more! Have a great week!
