Just came across another rare interview with Leonard! This time he’s promoting his second season of Mission: Impossible! (@1970) Although he seems delighted at the how his second season will explore the backgrounds of the MI characters, including Paris, we all know this was his last season with it.
He also discusses his pet shop, Pottery, Assault on The Wayne, and mentions his trip to Europe with Sandy.
Well it’s been a very blue winter (in so many ways) and to shake my winter blues I think of Spring, and when I think of Spring, I think of April, and when I think of April I think of April in Paris…or rather April with Paris!
So here’s a ‘spring’ preview with our favorite spy… 🙂 Ah, Paris! ❤
Funny thing, I was going through my old photo files and came across these pictures I took of my old TV back in 2008 — apparently when I was watching a rerun of Mission: Impossible! There’s Paris in his Magician garb! Had to share! (I wonder what channel this was? That looks like a daisy logo) . Ah the last days of analog…
Hi Everybody! For Christmas last month, I was delighted to receive the DVD set of The Carol Burnett Show, The Lost Episodes. I was excited to know I’d be seeing the episodes from 1967-72 that never made it to syndication! I was especially hoping to see the skit that went along with this famous still from Episode 12, Dec 4,1967 of Carol looking shocked as Leonard Nimoy (as Mr. Spock) appears in ‘Mrs. Invisible Man‘.
Turns out, although the DVD set has many episodes, it is not a compilation of the 1st 5 seasons. Instead are episodes hand-picked by Carol, packaged by TimeLife.com and issued piecemeal. I only received the first 6- disc collection, and this episode alas, was not there. (Nor is it within the second ‘lost episode’ set).
However, there is a silver lining in this set! Leonard Nimoy does appear! On the final disc, (Episode 316 from January 19, 1970) Nimoy appears as Paris from Mission: Impossible with Peter Graves, Greg Morris, and Peter Lupus in a surprise appearance at the end of a satirical Mission: Impossible skit! I’ve included screencaps here for your viewing pleasure! Carol gushes about M:I and gives a kiss to Peter Graves, and Leonard plants a sweet kiss on Carol too as he is clearly delighted to be there! They all crack up as guest star Flip Wilson (as Geraldine Jones), cozies up to Greg Morris! Nimoy would later appear on Flip Wilson’s variety show.
Here’s hoping Carol will release the Spock episode too (but not holding my breath for it!)
Lyle Waggoner, Flip Wilson, Carol Burnet, and Harvey Korman skewer Mission: Impossible on one of the ‘lost’ episodes of The Carol Burnett Show.
I’ve have had an idea to make a Spock/Nimoy tribute for a long time! (long before he passed). When I first heard this song by the great Billie Holiday, I thought it would be perfect backdrop for Spock’s beautiful brown eyes.I’ve combined clips of Mr. Nimoy as Spock and as Paris to make this little tribute. I hope it will bring joy to all who loved him.
It’s called Them There Eyes – In Honor of Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015. Enjoy, Thank you!
