The Daily Scrapbook: 3/13/13 (1978) “Nimoy Up to his Ears in Star Trek”

Here’s today’s flashback:  From 1978, a reprint of yesterday’s article from our local paper, a quick blurb with a picture of Leonard and Sandy (yeah, I scoured a lot of movies magazines to find any new pictures on Leonard and Trek people, (Man, was I loser or what?)   .   Is it me or does Sandy always look shocked or worried in pictures? And yet another Grin and Bear It comic, another stereotypical jab at female astronauts (still cute though)V2-014 Complete 2 V2-014C

Here’s today’s flashback:  Family pictures!

This was the first time I saw a picture of Mr. Nimoy and his family – son Adam, daughter Julie, and (later ex-) wife Sandy. This was definitely Nimoy’s ascot era. I treasured the picture so much I ‘laminated’ it with that new ‘invisible’ tape, (not realizing that it would make the paper yellow even faster!) and the lines fall practically across Nimoy’s eyes.  Sorry about that. Then a TV Guide blurb about one of Nimoy’s 1st post-Mission Impossible stints, an anthology of love stories by famous authors Somerset Maugham, Daphne Du Marier, and Kurt Vonnegut. Nimoy played opposite Juliet Mills (from Nanny and the Professor) in “Kiss Me Again Stranger” which I referred to here.

Another photo of Leonard and Sandy at at art exhibit in 1974,  note how he whipped off  his glasses for this one.   And then a photo of Mr. Shatner with his new (second) bride, the lovely Marcy Lafferty.  I remember really digging her earrings and wondering why a young woman of 27 would marry an old man of 43?  I wonder if Ms. Lafferty  would have reconsidered if she knew she’d  be only the second of his four wives?
