I’ve been seeing a trend lately on social media with Photoshopped pictures of celebrities side-hugging their younger versions of themselves, so naturally I had to make one with Leonard!
I’ll be doing the whole cast within the next few weeks; stay tuned!
As I write this, I just realized that it was 41 years ago on this day when I first met Leonard in Elmira! Today is also my sister’s birthday; Happy Birthday, Sis! ❤
(And thanks for your patience, I’ve been busy with my subbing job at the local Elementary School!)
Well, here’s one I’ve NEVER seen! Prime Nimoy in the 1950’s! Thanks to Monica Reinoso for finding this!!!
UPDATE: It’s on eBay for a few more days and the price is skyrocketing! (Thanks Bobbie!) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Trek-Icon-Leonard-Nimoy-Vintage-1950s-Early-Career-Portrait-Photograph-Rare/292377986411?hash=item441316056b:g:REYAAOSwywRaOonc
I came across this interesting little tidbit from Mr. Nimoy’s youth… This was Leonard’s responses to a questionnaire by a fan publication from the 1950’s called “Hi-Lites”, which covered ‘up and coming’ actors and actresses’. This one was from 1953-54. He was happy to respond to Mrs. Hreha’s questions with this gracious note and even supplied a photo!
Early in his career, he’s excited about the avenues opening up to him (Dragnet!) and possibly more so about his interests (“WOMEN!) (This was not long before his marriage to Sandi)
I love this cool, youthful image of Spock from “The Cage” by artist karracaz Just think, he played Spock for the first time 50 years ago! Aren’t we lucky?
What a fine young man! Is it me or is his right ear sticking out more than usual here?
