My Weekly Spock: Spock the Plumber! (Rare image)

Hey Kids,

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!

 

My Weekly Spock: Leonard, The Acting Coach

Remember a while back when I posted those great pics of Leonard in a tennis sweater? Well, a reader kindly provided me with the full article (and pictures) that came with it!  It was from TV Star Parade from November 1968,  and it’s a great article about Leonard’s work as an acting coach!   I didn’t realize he had helped such actors as Richard Chamberlain, Michelle Lee, and Pat Boone!  Renaissance man strikes again! (Although at the time he probably needed the money) Surprisingly, there’s a reference to his future wife Susan Bay here too! The best part is that there’s still a lot of great advice here for aspiring thespians! (like me!)

Wideo Wednesday 1/30/13 The Lion in Winter

Here  in the deep cold of winter, I thought I’d feature a few scenes from one of my favorite movies of all time to cozy up with.  I think I’ve memorized most of the dialogue in The Lion in Winter, (1968) if you’ve never seen it , rent or Netflix it now!  Every performance s sterling. Especially O’Toole and Hepburn.
