My Weekly Spock: Western Wulcan

Seemed like a good time to bring out some Western shots of Leonard in two of his best westerns, Catlow (1971) as bounty hunter Miller, and the NBC movie, Bonanza: Under Attack (1995)  where Leonard played  reformed outlaw Frank James who helps the progeny of the Cartwright family fight an unscrupulous Pinkerton detective.   I’ve seen Catlow, but never the Bonanza one, hope to find it soon.

My Weekly Spock: Nimoy as Freddy in Bonanza “The Ape”

Leonard appeared in this 1960 episode of the classic Western Bonanza as a sleazy bartender who makes fun of Arte, the Cartwrights dim-witted, but incredibly big and strong ranch hand.

Nimoy’s scenes are few, but he adds t another in a line of ‘heavies’ to his resume.  At least he’s a sharp dresser!

You can see the whole episode here.  🙂
