In the opening Kirk scene of "In Thy Image", he is swimming naked with a woman he has been in a relationship with.
I've never seen that version of the script.

Mmmmm. I thought that scene was in my Lincoln Enterprises version of the script. Kirk and Alexandra are swimming when Kirk gets the message about the approach of the cloud entity and the destruction of the Klingon ships. My copy is packed away.

I also recall the former poster, The God-Thing, mentioning/remembering it - which makes me wonder, now, if that the scene was also in Roddenberry's lost/unpublished novel? But I certainly haven't read "The God-Thing".

I'm not disbelieving you. There are numerous versions of that endlessly rewritten script.

That is quite the understatement. It was rewritten so often that the rewrites would have to be labeled not only with the date but the time of day, as pages would sometimes be rewritten multiple times in the same day.

I remember reading that scene and wondering how they could have portrayed that on-screen.
Look at Logan's Run, which was filmed a few years earlier. Logan and Jessica go for a PG-rated naked swim . . . .

Logan's Run is a great move. Jenny Agutter... Wow.

Where we're we... Oh, ya. The MPAA sucks!

Gotta disagree there. It's a great idea but it's mediocre in many regards.

^Good review. I agree -- the film was kind of a mess.

Re: How did TMP get a G rating?

I have a nostalgic soft spot for the movie, but, yeah, it hasn't aged well and cries out for a remake.

That said, I'm old enough to remember when Logan's Run costumes were still fashionable at conventions. "Freeze, Runner!"

Just because it isn't a great movie doesn't mean it has no pop-culture cachet.

Agreed. Which makes it a prime candidate for a remake. It has enough good stuff to be fondly remembered, but there's still plenty of room for improvement!

(Although I sometimes miss those diaphanous chiffon miniskirts--for all the wrong reasons!)

And Jessica changing into furs in the "ice cave" or whatever it was. Of course the Franco Zeffirelli Romeo and Juliet, which many boys my age sat through solely because they'd heard about Olivia Hussey's brief toplessness, was originally G-rated.

Heck, Charlton Heston and his fellow astronauts went for a "naked swim" in Planet of the Apes way back in 1968.

"Logan's Run" got massive pre-publicity here in Australia. One of our big daily variety shows ran a series of interviews and preview clips for a week over one school holidays. I'd only just started to attend movies regularly and I saw "Logan's Run" with my younger brother - and both of us came out wondering if we'd gotten value for money, having recently passed into the adult ticket age-group.

Later that night, my French teacher took a group of us to see a French film, "Cousin, Cousine" (later remade with Ted Danson, IIRC), in the same cinema complex and that also turned out to be less than memorable.

I started getting very cautious about movies. But yes, many elements of "Logan's Run" have stayed with me over the years, even though I've only really seen it once in the cinema and some segments on TV.

As for Zefferelli's "Romeo & Juiet". A "G" rated school excursion because we were studying the play... and yeah, one scene was very memorable for the boys in my class.
