This is a really wonderful interview with Leonard Nimoy talking about growing up in the West End of Boston. ❤ I especially like when he describes losing his accent and getting Sea Hunt work from Lloyd Bridges, and when he discusses how he identified with Spock. From 2014.
One of my favorite interviews ever, Leonard Nimoy talks with Geoff Boucher of the site Hero Complex. He talks of photography, directing, and meeting Jimi Hendrix!
A good friend of mine gave me some of her old Films in Review magazines and to my delight, I found this interview with Leonard Nimoy in one of the issues! He discusses directing Star Trek III and almost gives away the ending! Alas, the only picture they use her is Nimoy in 1/4 profile, but it’s a good interview and insight into an early directing experience for the actor. (btw, Films in Review actually blasted the movie in the August ’84 edition, (see here) but at least they gave Nimoy a chance to talk nicely about it in the November issue.
This was the exclusive interview that Julie Nimoy gave about her Dad Leonard Nimoy– she will carry out a project about COPD that she promised her Dad. ❤
As you may recall from my last update, I issued a challenge to all of you to raise $1,500 for Celeste’s cancer fund, and if we achieved this goal we’d get an Exclusive Interview with Celeste here. Alas, so far I’ve only seen one donation (aside from my own) that has the words ‘trekerscrapbook’ on it, and suffice to say. we’re nowhere near the $1500 goal*. But we can change this.
Did you know that between the “likes” on Facebook for this blog, and my subscribers, Trekker Scrapbook is 1,145 members strong? I challenge 100 of my followers to donate just $15.00 each TODAY — Donating is easy- just be sure to add the words “Trekker Scrapbook” when you add a comment to your donation here. (This is how I tally the donations). If you can’t send $15.00, send $10 or even $5– every bit will help! I know reaching this goal will make Celeste very happy, please contribute as soon as you can!
Cancer bills are almost as detrimental as cancer itself as you can see in this article. Please help Celeste ease her burden. Thank You, and wishing you all good health, LLAP, Therese
(And enjoy the new comic, Celeste! ❤ ❤ ❤ )
*btw, the $1500 goal was my idea, not Celeste’s!
Still from Nimoy’s 1967 interview with KGW-TV
Prepare for a treat: This is an extremely rare and long-thought lost interview with Leonard Nimoy in 1967 for Portland,Oregon station KGW-TV news. Leonard talks about being Mr. Spock, and the interviewer must be entranced because she asks him questions as if the Enterprise and Spock are real! (She likes his hair too!)
Kudos to reader John Webb for alerting me to this!
Hey Kids, here’s Mr. Nimoy on Piers Morgan — and Morgan can’t hide his geeky side!
Having a crazy busy week prepping for Christmas! So many projects to finish! I’ll post a bit more next week, but for now, here’s some truly funk-a-delic Nimoy from 1974, in his memorable appearance on The Mike Douglas Show!
Thrilled someone posted this, although I know there’s more than this! I’ve been looking for images of this incredible, phenomenal, denim patchwork suit, and you got to give the guy credit for pushing the fashion envelope! (He could fly away in those lapels!) –Next week I’ll post some stills!
Anyone remember Mason Reese? He was an advertising sensation in the early 70’s for his quirky looks and voice. So much so that he got a whole week as ‘co-host’ on the Mike Douglas talk show. Man, I remember watching this when it first came on (my Mom watched it every day). A shame Douglas didn’t have Nimoy as his co-host for a week, (although he did guest several times) Nimoy’s so sweet to his little fan here, saying: “We’ll take you on a trip on the Enterprise” Oh man, did I envy Mason here!
So as an early Christmas Present, Here’s your deliciousness for today!
Here’s today’s blast from the past. A fascinating piece from the New York Times sent to me by one of my Aunts about rival Star Trek Conventions, all after the Trekkie dollar. (That Trek huckster is really rockin’ the Mirror Spock look) A portion of a TV Guide article about nostalgia conventions, and a local article about Deforest Kelley being interviewed by WHRW, the local college station. I remember listening to that radio interview, and recording it with my new, handy, bright yellow Panasonic “Take n’ Tape” Cassette recorder! I called the station afterwards and chatted a while with the interviewer, Mona Delitsky. She was wonderful, and thankful that someone was listening. We chatted about our Star Trek loves for a good 20 minutes. I vaguely recall meeting her a a later at another Trek event, and I told her about our previous conversation, but she didn’t remember it. No big deal; sometimes I don’t even remember what I ate for breakfast!
