Re: Most interesting casting choice

Inside Star Trek: The Real Story pretty much covered it concerning the Nimoy situation. Throw in I Am Not Spock and I doubt there's anything new on the subject that Cushman will turn up.

Re: Most interesting casting choice

Joan Collins as Edith Keeler was very interesting to me. Collins was very beautiful - yes. But for one thing, I find it odd that Keeler should have a British accent, without her country of origin being mentioned, at all ... especially to her "Young Man" Kirk. It's also interesting casting considering what a Power House she eventually became. The 40s had no shortage of Femme Fatales, but Collins made being a bitch socially acceptable, for the 80s ... and beyond! For all of her beauty, flaunting her wares and playing bitch roles, the one thing that makes her stand out in STAR TREK is that she's damn good in her role! This woman can really act and I like how Shatner plays against her. Once she shows up, he stops acting hammy. Only Joan Collins ...
