Re: Behind the scenes: When a fan visited the set

Great stuff. You rarely see this kind of actor-fan interaction take place in productions back then or even since. Nimoy is quite the consummate gentleman. It also seems to affirm how much he believed in the show as being something special.

It's also terrific to see some "old guard" fans around on the forum, who can shed light on things long past.

Great pics, thanks. Any captions to identify some of the behind the scenes folks in the pics. I recognized Shatner, of course, but not some of the others.

Hi Sir Rhosis,

I believe these pictures are from the January 1968 TV Radio Mirror magazine. If so, then the person in the tenth photo from the top, standing next to Nimoy, is Dack Rambo.

At any rate, starting from the top picture, here's who I recognize:

1. Person on Nimoy's left is Sandy Nimoy.
4. Teresa Victor (Nimoy's Assistant) is to Nimoy's left.
11. Person seated behind and between Nimoy and Peggye is Jerry Finnerman. As already mentioned, Pevney is to Peggye's left.
12. L to R: Peggye, Nimoy and Sandy.

BTW, Peggye Vickers was one of the presidents of the Leonard Nimoy Association of Fans (http://fanlore.org/wiki/Leonard_Nimo...iation_of_Fans). Leonard was (and still is) very gracious to his clubs.

Regards,

Dave

Thanks for identifying the magazine. There wasn't anything on the pieces of it in the scrapbook to identify it.

Re: Behind the scenes: When a fan visited the set

Amazing pictures, gives us a great idea who it must have felt being there.

I couldn't help but notice the yet unprocessed "Burke Tube" (to become the tri-ladder shaft near engineering?) in the shot with the 35mm camera Matt Jefferies used so often in the series. I was previously only aware of these "Burke Chairs": http://www.cloudster.com/Sets&Vehicl...eChairsTop.htm

"Burke" really looks like ACME - a company making everything.

Yes, thanks for this!

Peggye looks a lot like Dana Delany in the episode of CHINA BEACH where she got an unflattering, period hairstyle. And the period was 1968, so there you go.

Is it sonotube, the stuff they use for pouring concrete? It gets used in movies when you want cheap cylinder shapes (there are very small sonotubes in the wall of Kirk's TWOK quarters, where they have the little cabinets on the front.)

I'm thinking they were used in FOR THE WORLD IS HOLLOW and maybe THE DEADLY YEARS as well for structures on planet surfaces. Had no idea that the Burke people did anything like that (and can't find anything online about them doing that either.)

These kinds of stories always make me think of the late Joan Winston's account of being on-set during TURNABOUT INTRUDER. Kelley comes off like an utter prince, no surprise, and it seemed like everybody was pretty nice considering they were all (except I guess Nimoy) going on unemployment next week.

I remember that, too. She had a huge crush on Shatner. The kicker was that she took pictures on the set and then the drugstore that was supposed to develop the film said they lost it. (More likely a technician in their lab stole the pics.)

I think I may have too, but she said in the book that (at least some of) her film was lost by the developers at Schwab's drugstore.

I definitely concur.

Indeed. I hope to do the same when/if I become "old guard."

I don't think so, but let me pull the original from my archives and check. Stay tuned.

Just a follow up:

I pulled the original to check picture #11 and I believe the man on the far right in the striped shirt is the boom operator, Bob Kyte. Also, the man in the background wearing the visor, behind Pevney and to his left, is the gaffer George Merhoff. Finally, I believe the man in the background wearing glasses, between Jerry Finnerman (also in the background) and Peggye, is the camera operator Cliff MacDonald.
