Loved the story about the hiring of the old retired cinematographer who did "a little thing called Gone With The Wind."
That's a fun story, but it's straight out of Inside Star Trek: The Real Story
(which Cushman quotes from extensively). It's a shame he couldn't get an interview with Herb Solow to talk about some of the omissions and mistakes from that book.
-- Wow, The Cage cost the equivalent today of $4.6 million? And it wasn't even aired?
It was essentially broadcast in the form of 'The Menagerie.' Obviously, neither NBC nor Desilu wanted to waste all that money. Plus, it helped the production make their broadcast dates since they got two weeks of usable material out of one week of shooting.
