My Weekly Spock: Nimoy as McMurphy in “…Cuckoo’s Nest”

Did you know that May is National Mental Health Month?  Such an important condition, and one that its own sufferers are often too ashamed to get help for fear of being stigmatized.  Never neglect a loved one who is going through their own personal hell; they need all the help they can get.

On a lighter note, here’s Leonard in his 1974 stage performance as Randall McMurphy, the wrongly institutionalized patient in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.  Boy I would have loved to see this.

(and yeah, it helps that he’s just in a towel…)

My Weekly Spock: Enter Stage Left

Here’s some stage appearances from Mr. Nimoy, who did a lot of theater in the 1970’s.  I wish I could have seen one of these.  It looks like pure delight (and hard work) for the actor who loves theater like his own child.
