Here’s a treat for you! This is a wonderful documentary about actress Susan Oliver who all Trek fans revere as Vina from The Cage. But there was so much more about Susan as a actress, director, and aviatrix. An incredible woman with crystal blue eyes and a no-nonsense attitude who finally gets her due here. There are interviews with favorites here like David Hedison (Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea) and our own Celeste Yarnall. It’s so good to see Susan’s legacy get some respect here, I only wish she lived to see it. Enjoy this splendid documentary while it’s up on YouTube:
For this week’s Fan Art, and amazing commission by artist MJBivouac! Vina’s ready to take a bite out of Pike! Of course, we know that Vina’s actual costume didn’t reveal that much voluptuousness, (if any) but I suspect that the customer who ordered this is always right! Note Pike’s blazing blues and the the background detail. Hard to believe that The Cage was filmed 50 years ago!
I’m a great fan of old movies, I watch TCM whenever I can, and I am especially a fan of old movie poster art. After doing my StarTreKomics for several months now, (and yes, there will be more) all the collage work I had been doing suddenly lit a compact fluorescent bulb over my head. Hey! Trek has always been a great adventure/romance/drama in the most cinematic way, and wouldn’t it be fun to re-imagine episodes as if they were weekly serials at the movies? Of course, they’d need a thrilling poster to attract attention. hope to do all 79 episodes, but for now, here is the first in my series of Trek Episode Movie posters; Ladies and Gentleman of all species, here is “The Cage” -Be sure to click on the image to see in in it’s full size glory!
Now, I refuse to read any of these ridiculous side ads that seem to have found an amazing amount of ‘Moms’ in my ‘local’ area who all have found ‘miraculous $5 tricks’ to erase the lines of time.
But I admit, a long time ago, I did once open an ad for the ‘strange simple secret’ to lose belly fat. It led to page upon page upon page promising that you’d read this secret soon, and that it was ‘so simple’ that you wouldn’t believe it! Well, I was a good 40+ pages in and it still kept promising the ‘secret’ would really work, but I closed the ad because I just didn’t care, and by the time I had the ‘answer’ I probably could have walked around the block 3 or 4 times!
But back to this ‘local Mom’. You know, these ads always feature the face of a woman who has never had wrinkles, or worse, the picture where a bar sweeps back and forth over a gruesomely photo-shopped wrinkly face, transforming it into an immaculately smooth face. (shudder!) Yet today, the latest picture I’ve seen for these annoying ads caught my eye. Here it is, slightly enlarged:
Oka-a-a-y. So I guess this means to lose my wrinkles I only have to become a green Orion Slave Girl? Hmm. Maybe it works? Look, here’s Susan Oliver getting the same treatment in 1964! 😉
