Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

One time I was watching an old Man From UNCLE episode, and this fellow showed up in a still photograph:



He later shows up again, in the flesh, looking much younger:



James Doohan in "The Bridge of Lions Affair".

It's interesting to compare actors in old-age makeup with how they look when they really do get old. The makeup artists rarely come anywhere near the truth. The only thing that photo has in common with the real older James Doohan is the moustache.

I've often noted that too. But I wonder how much of this is due to the cosmetic procedures nearly everyone in show business has done these days. Facials, chemical peels, face lifts, hair dye, wigs, hormone therapies... we have no idea what aging actors would really look like without all the work being done.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

^I really don't think that applies to how James Doohan looked in the '80s and early '90s. The reason is that people's faces change shape as they age, often due to weight gain, sometimes due to weight loss. Age makeup rarely incorporates weight-gain makeup as well, which is why Shatner and Doohan aged so differently in reality than they did in "The Deadly Years" (or The Man from U.N.C.L.E.).

And of course the voice also changes with age, something else that actors have a hard time faking. Shatner's voice is much deeper now than it was in the '60s, in contrast to "The Deadly Years" where he put on a higher-pitched "old man" voice.

I was delighted to run into Leslie Parrish again while watching a Mannix episode yesterday:









I was crazy bout her back then. Such a beauty!
Ah, but you missed the fact that Leslie Parrish actually wore her very same Apollo-created gown in the MANNIX episode, "The Girl In The Frame":

In MANNIX:

^Logan Ramsey.

Come to think of it, Mannix was the third and final series that came out of Herb Solow's efforts to get Desilu into the hourlong-drama business again, after Star Trek and Mission: Impossible. So it's no wonder they had so many guest stars in common, and no wonder that Parrish reused the Carolyn Palamas dress.

A Sutton Roley-directed episode! You can tell by the reflection of Mannix in his sideview mirror as Lee Meriwether drives by. Roley was very inventive with odd angles and shots.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Yes, there were some very clever shots in this episode. Flashbacks were especially clever - a character would walk across the shot as she began telling the story, and her head would act as an in-camera wipe to the flashback, revealing the past event behind her, then her past self would do the same thing in the flashback, revealing the present behind her in the wipe. Required some good in-camera planning to have the actress in two different makeups and probably a stand-in as well to complete the shot.

Speaking of which, woke up last night, turned the tube on - which was tuned to Turner Classic Movies - and the infamous Monkee movie, Head was on, and Ramsey was in that as an LA cop in one one of the many dream/LSD trip segments...

Wonder if Joe D' Agosta did the casting for that - which seems likely...and I also wonder if Parrish herself remembered the costume, when the script suggested a 'sexy wrap around' dress...

Yes, he did. He did all the Desilu shows from that period -- The Lucy Show, Here's Lucy, Star Trek, Mission: Impossible, and Mannix. He also did Roddenberry's first show, The Lieutenant, which was from MGM.

and I also wonder if Parrish herself remembered the costume, when the script suggested a 'sexy wrap around' dress...
Hard to say. Would she have wanted to wear it again, given how much tape it would've had to be stuck to her skin with and how carefully she probably had to move in it? Anyway, it strikes me as the sort of thing that would've been the costume supervisor's responsibility, not the actress's.

Anyway, the Mannix episode aired only 6 months after "Who Mourns for Adonais?", so somebody in the costume department may have remembered the dress. The costumers for the different Desilu shows may have worked in the same offices or workspaces, or used some of the same assistants, or something, so the folks over on Mannix may have known about the Palamas dress when it was made (it certainly would've left an impression) and remembered it when Parrish was cast for Mannix.

This makes me wonder if any other Trek costumes have shown up in other TV shows. Maybe we need a spinoff thread for "Trek costumes in maybe surprising roles."
