    Heh...I had it on in the background while doing other stuff, and noticed him in the first episode, but didn't catch him in the second!

    Let us not forget that Mr.Gregory was also General Ursus in the movie Beneath The Planet of The Apes!

    Maybe he should have worn glasses instead. This being Superman and all.

    Charles Dierkop (the berieved husband in Wolf in the Fold) showed his nose in the Mannix 6th season ep I just watched, called "The Upside Down Penny", as Generic Bad Guy Number Two.

    ^Dierkop also played a member of Butch Cassidy's gang in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and it's ironic that he was in such a minor role, because he looked immensely more like the real Butch Cassidy than Paul Newman did.

    Dierkop was one of Lonnegan's goons in The Sting. Ray Walston (Boothby), Byron Morrow (Admirals Westervliet and Komack) and Ed Bakey (first fop in All Our Yesterdays) also appeared in The Sting.

    Wow, you're right Christopher. I'd not considered that before!

    An interesting twofer in the "Search" episode "A Honeymoon to Kill" (1973). Antoinette "Sylvia" Bower and Rudi "Behold the God Who Bleeds!" Solari conniving to kill Luciana Paluzzi.

    Rudi spent the whole show in those cool shades!

    Of course, in his most famous role, his job was essentially to screw with ANOTHER Captain's head..as Inspector Frank D. Luger, NYPD.

    Perfectly cast though as real-life outlaw "Flat Nose" Curry.

    This week's episode of "The Man from UNCLE" on MeTV had a Trek two-header: Roger Carmel as a good-hearted Yugoslavian smuggler and Jill Ireland as the daughter of a murdered scientist. Bonus points: Ann Francis (from FORBIDDEN PLANET) as the femme fatale and Richard Anderson ("Oscar Goldman" of SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN and BIONIC WOMAN fame) as a former U.S. military officer out to stage a coup.

    ^Ahh, "The Quadripartite Affair," the series' third episode. Ireland was David McCallum's wife at the time, and would come back as the same character in episode 7 (with Francis returning too), and as a couple of other characters later in the series. As I said in my blog review, "The weirdest thing about this episode for me is that it features a heroic Harry Mudd against an evil Oscar Goldman."

    I had screen grabs of Jill Ireland's appearence earlier in this thread, but they went away when I switched website hosts. :(

    That's the one. (I confess I didn't have the nerve to try to spell "Quadripartite" without looking it up.)

    I noticed that Ireland was paired with Ilya instead of Solo getting the girl, but if she was McCallum's wife at the time I guess that makes sense . . . .

    I had less trouble accepting Anderson as a villain because I'm probably one of the few people on Earth who mostly thinks of him as THE NIGHT STRANGLER rather than Oscar Goldman. :)

    There's a second-season episode where Ireland plays a different character who's Solo's love interest, but the final freeze-frame comes just before they kiss. I imagine either McCallum or Ireland was unhappy with the idea of her kissing her husband's co-star. (Or maybe she just didn't like him? I sometimes get the impression that the two leads didn't like each other very much. Certainly in the second season they have limited interaction and come off more like rivals than partners.)


    I was mainly surprised at how bald he was in "Quadripartite." All these years, I never realized Oscar wore a toupee.

    You're kidding? If you watch the final episode of The Bionic Woman, Oscar argues with the Senator (played by Skip Homeier) and you can see the leather underside of his rug on his forehead! Both of them were sporting syrups infact! Richard Anderson shows his normal balding pate in The Invaders episode The Enemy as he reverts back to his true alien form, something that resembles Ben Grimm The Thing from The Fantastic Four!
