Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

I'm 99% sure there is, and it's in Inside Star Trek: The Real Story.

As I recall, the producers made sure they shot quite a bit extra footage of Nona and included it in the rough cut. That way, when NBC objected, they would have plenty of material they never wanted to cut out, while leaving in what they wanted in the first place.

At least, that's what I remember. Someone with the book handy could verify that.

Yes, I've read Inside Star Trek, and I think there's something about the censor nearly falling over because a nipple was visible in one shot.

Actually it was just a bit of "sideboob." The standards of the day were a lot more restrictive than they are now.

Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

I think this is in the Solow/Justman book, but this letter was sent to the production after screening the rough cut:

Stanley Robertson to John [Meredyth] Lucas
November 2, 1967

Dear John:

This will confirm our telephone conversation of this afternoon in which I advised you that the above rough cut, viewed by us on Tuesday afternoon, was, in the form in which screened, unacceptable. Although we realize that certain cuts in the film have been made since our viewing, we have chosen to re-screen the film and view the results of these changes tomorrow afternoon at which time we will decide on the acceptability of the episode.

We realize, John, that the episode in question was not produced by you but, as a guideline for the future, we must reiterate our position that the costuming, the implied sex, and the forms of violence as we discussed, are totally unacceptable to NBC for airing over our facilities.

We strongly urge that you pass our feelings along to your creative staff so that in the future we can avoid such a situation as we currently have facing us.

Regards,

Stanley Robertson
Manager, Film Programming

Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

^Bob Justman in IST (on pp. 355-6 of the hardcover) reports a verbal conversation between himself and someone at Broadcast Standards. But apparently that was before Robertson screened it separately for NBC's Program Department.

Excellent intro, Harvey. I know you will do this piece justice. Good luck on the job hunt.

I'd just like to add a quick note: the quote from David Alexander (He chose "Judd Crucis,") is a typo. There was only one D in Jud.

Yeah, that's Alexander's typo. His book isn't as bad as anything self-published, but there are some odd ones that made it through. I'll add the [sic].

Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

Part two of my article on "A Private Little War" this week.

Found some interesting correspondence about attempted NASA astronaut cameos yesterday. Will do some more research and write that one up at some point.

Thanks for part 2. In anticipation of it, I watched "Private Little War" again last night. Not really, I actually watched it to drool over Nancy Kovack again.

Re: Fact-Checking Inside Star Trek: The Real Story

So, in addition to my regular, weekly content I'm now helping Orion Press complete their Unseen Elements of the Original Series page. (Basically, I'm transcribing all the material they don't have access to). In exchange for that, I get to re-post any new content from that page, beginning with this short piece about 'The Planet Eater.'

I'm doing my best to keep writing my own content, but I'm with a temp agency at the moment in LA, so taking any work I can get as it comes is obviously the priority. I've already written Part 3 of my Private Little War piece (which, at this pace, will probably end up being 5 parts!) but as for anything after that...it might be a while.
