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…)

Some Rare Fantastic Arlene Martel (T’Pring) Pictures!

Hey All!

Finally getting back into posting after a couple of very busy months between work and being sick!  (I’m feeling great today!)

My friend Karen found these fantastic candid photos of actress Arlene Martel prepping for her role as T’Pring in Amok Time, as well as a secondary promo pic of she and Leonard (they look thisclose to kissing!)  I’m including the more common promo shot of T’Pring and Spock glancing at each other too)   What a find!  I can never get enough of rare TOS shots!  She’s just adorable as she shows off her ears and wig! Lovely Arlene <3  Missed.

My Weekly Spock: 50 Years Ago This Month-Nimoy in TV Guide. (Full Article)

Imagine 50 years ago this month, TV Guide  printed its first cover article on Star Trek, and although it featured both Bill an Leonard on the cover, the main article centered on that interesting young actor who had to wear those pointy ears… Enjoy this piece on the  popular, but humble Mr. Nimoy. <3  (Thanks Bobbie Reno for the scans!)

My Weekly Spock – Who is that Leonard in the Neighborhood?

A friend on Facebook posted these (Thanks Glo!). She had these pictures from a friend of hers who happened to be in Leonard’s old Boston neighborhood in the ’70’s when he was visiting his Mom!  You can see his mom Dora in the 1st picture with from the back getting into the car.  Ever gracious,  Leonard smiles for the fan in the second picture.  <3
