My Weekly Spock: Leonard Nimoy in “Seizure” (1980)

Just came across these gorgeous stills from Seizure: The Story of Kathy Morris which came out in 1980.  I remember seeing this when it was broadcast, based on a true story and very moving.

The Daily Scrapbook 5/1/13 (Jan1979) Star Trek Winding Down and a showing at the Library!

Here’s today’s flashback: From January 1979, an article about the Trek movie winding down, and some interesting takes from the stars — I love De Kelley, who was just enjoying the show, much more laid back about being a part of the whole thing.  Says De:

…I’m not as ambitious as Bill and Leonard…I had a good career before Star Trek, playing mostly heavies, and I’m content to take it easy.  After all, I’ve been around a while.

(Kelley was 58 at the time of this article, bless him.) Also, a note about Nimoy’s next project “Seizure” and another boffo ad for Invasion of the Body Snatchers, And for all those nerds without dates there’s also was a showing of” The The Trouble with Tribbles” at a local branch of the Library. (Mind you, this was the era before Netflix, and Trekkies had to get their fixes anywhere they could!)V2-030 copy V2-031 copy
