Wow, did that guy get one of Clorine's old records? I wonder if that was something off loaded after she passed, interesting little treasure trove they found. Love the little clip about his $35 haircut.

By all accounts, he was one of the nicest, most decent men in Hollywood.

Thanks for sharing JT.

Imagine finding something like that in an old record sleeve. Amazing.

Anyway, happy birthday De, a class act on and off the stage

Wow! One of those pics I've seen before, but not that size. The rest are all new to me. It's not easy to find good pictures of a younger DeForest Kelley online.

Re: early Deforest Kelly pictures

The resemblance of a young De Kelley and a young Gary Sinese is pretty amazing....

There are those who wanted the 6'5" Sinise to take over the role of McCoy. Somehow, I don't think the good doctor should be that much taller than Kirk and Spock.

I thought this sounded way off, so I looked it up. According to IMDB, Sinise is only 5'-9".

McCoy is the best Doctor of any Star Trek series, imo.

It's ridiculous, because in my head, the reaganian dork Mac Taylor can't be a plausible McCoy....I just forget that he was Lieutenant Dan, a totally passionate character.
