The Daily Scrapbook “Leonard Nimoy- At Last, He’s a Man!

Here’s today’s flashback:  From a movie magazine in the early 70’s, this article declares that Nimoy is at last a man!.  No, it’s not about his Bar Mitzvah some 30 years earlier, but rather how he’s finally playing a human male in Mission Impossible! Yet despite it’s praise for Nimoy’s achievements, the actor was never far from the shadow of Mr. Spock.  I have to admit though, I’ve never thought of Mr. Spock as having ‘green skin’ (it was more just pale with a touch of green cast!)  The snotty caption under the publicity picture doesn’t help!  One has no doubt than Nimoy was all man to begin with!

And we’ve got to have this famous Mission: Impossible image!

Ah, l’amour! And so ends our week with Paris. I wish he stayed a third season on M:I, or got a spin-off, but it was fun while it lasted.

Here he is at his most irresistable…   Sexy Nerd, Sexy Arab, Sexy Magician*, and Thoroughly Charming, Million Dollar-Smile.

*I have to smile at the picture of him and Lee Meriwether, for as you Trekkers recall, Lee played Losira in “That Which Survives”, (Below)but she and Leonard never had a scene with each other (save for her projection at the end, which was probably added later)  So I’m glad they got to work together here!

As Paris week draws to a close, here’s some of his LESS successful looks:

The Mike Brady

The Rasputin

And finally… SERIOUSLY? Gepetto called, he wants his head back!

I commend Mr. Nimoy for risking his cool reputation on heinous looks like these!   (Hey, he was glad to have work at this time!)

Well, at least he had a break from pointed ears!

Dear God! What facial fungus is this???

Paris couldn’t have enough ascots!  It was the epitome of cool at the time, but Leonard pulled it off!

Paris Week!  I recall vaguely when Nimoy started on Mission Impossible as Paris — my brothers and sisters made it appointment television, and occasionally I was allowed to stay up and watch!
