My Weekly Spock- Young, Younger, Youngest, and just So Young!

Here’s some wonderful portraits of young Leonard I had never seen before — so young!  You can imagine the dreams of success in his young mind. These all appear to be taken in his early to mid 20’s, but in the bottom two he looks barely out of his teens!   Glad these were taken!

My Weekly Spock — I Was a Teenage Spock

Sorry I didn’t post much last week, kids!  Busy with work, my son being away for a school trip, Easter, and rescuing a stray cat! It has a new home now  ❤ )  But here’s this week’s Nimoy appetizer.   🙂   I came across these sweet pics of little and teenage Lennie! (The first one I Photoshopped a little since it had a huge crack across the right side).

I was a teenage spock reverse  copy1235057_578292875541697_2035469530_n 309229_462530030433848_40104904_n  379251_490526830984969_1287284237_n

My Weekly Spock: 1950’s “Hi-Lites” Questionnaire

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)

FArFri: “Unsure” A Young, Pensive Spock from The Cage, by artist karracaz

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?

My Weekly Spock –“Sea Hunt” in his Birthday Suit (sort of)

Hey Kids,

Since this is Leonard Nimoy Birthday Week, I couldn’t think of a better way to start off than having Mr. Nimoy in his birthday suit…well, half of it!

Nimoy did eight episodes of the Lloyd Bridges series Sea Hunt.  Here’s screencaps from one of his most au natural appearances The Shipwreck (1958) Nimoy plays Vince, a newlywed trapped with his whiny wife, an old man, and Mike Nelson (Bridges) in a life raft without paddles for nearly a week at sea.  It gets pretty desperate, and Vince is a bit of a dope, but he has incredibly great hair blowing in the sea breeze, and lots of hairy chest goodness..
