What better way to start the week than with a swinging 60’s Leonard?
I bought this beautiful candid photo on eBay. Leonard is wearing a groovy deep red Nehru jacket as he visits back stage at a performance of Macbeth. This was taken almost 50 years ago on January 12, 1969!
I loved the picture and that gentle smile so much, I made a black and white copy too, to see more detail. Leonard was one cool, cultured dude!
I recently purchased this beautiful photo of Leonard on eBay, and I just love it. He’s not posing or smiling with a fan or group, just signing a autograph. But you can see the gentle joy in his face and just a hint of a smile as he signs. I’ve seen other pictures of this particular event and it looks like he was really enjoying himself here, but there’s something about this image that just has quiet dignity to it.. He really cared for his fans and never took them for granted. Weren’t we lucky? Photo by Peter Warrack.
And by the way, if anyone knows where and when this was taken, please comment below. I”m guessing it was during his Vincent tour.
No matter what this new year brings, you gotta start your day with a smile! Here’s some previously unseen out-take Spock smiles from the new blu-ray The Roddenberry Vault! (I got it for Christmas! Will review soon!) Wishing you all a blessed and healthy new year! Love, Therese
Reviewing pictures of Leonard — This was a happy man. I mean, sure, we all have problems and can’t be happy all the time, but so often you can see the genuine joy Leonard possessed in many candids and portraits.
He clearly loved his work, his family, his fans, and his life. His smile was infectious and images of him laughing or smiling always bring me joy!
Since Paris seemed so somber and serious last week, I thought we should see his happy side too! See, spying isn’t all bad! (But that Brillo beard has got to go!)
Some Swell Shaggy Seventies Smiles! So often he was posed so seriously, it’s great to see him with that million-dollar grin. And that hair! The first two are from an auto show. Theo fourth is backstage, (I think from The King and I) the fifth is on a very windy day and the last has one funkadelic shirt!
