    John Hoyt featured in a 1964 American International obomination called "The Time Travelers". Same year he made The Cage, presumably - from one pajama costume to another.

    Oh - the Wall of Legs is because they're in a futuristic android factory in the year 2071.

    ^^The guy on the right looks like Walter Pidgeon, but who are the two on the left in the second pic? The woman looks like Hayley Mills' character's older sister in "That Darn Cat", and I'd swear I saw the little guy in an episode of "Wild Wild West" doing a chicken impression(named LeFou, or something).

    That's not Walter Pidgeon. Here's the movie's cast:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058659/?ref_=nv_sr_2

    The "little guy" is Steve Franken, who did indeed play a LeFou in a Wild Wild West episode, among many other character parts. But the woman is not Dorothy Provine from That Darn Cat!

    It sure does look like her. But so many actresses were mimicking Doris Day right around then.

    I think they made the guy LOOK like Walter Pidgeon to mimic Forbidden Planet. American International had no shame.

    You know what really killed me? All the women were wearing bright peach-colored lipstick. It glowed!

    Steve Franken was TV's go to nerd/nebbish for twenty years....put a pair of dark frame glasses on him, and you would recognize him immediately!

    So was the DVD! I enhanced the contrast for the screen grabs, but not the saturation.

    And Arnold Stang, with his unusual accent. Best heard in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and Hercules Goes Bananas.

    Back to Mannix season 7 for the always lovely Barbara Luna, pretty in pink.

    The episode also featured familiar non-Trek faces Frank Langella, John Hillerman, and Del Monroe.

    ^Frank Langella is a Trek face, though not a TOS face. He played Minister Jaro in the opening 3-parter of DS9's second season, although he went uncredited.

    ^IIRC, he went uncredited so people would watch for the story, and not because of him.

    By golly, you're right, I'd forgotten. But it's just as well since this is the TOS section.

    Mannix falls for client Nancy Kovak (Mehta) in season 7's "Sing a Song of Murder":

    She's Medea in Ray Harryhausen's Jason and the Argonauts, along with John Crawford of "The Galileo Seven" as one of the sailors.

    Several month ago I rewatched Family Matters, mostly because I wanted to see Barry Jenner (Admiral Ross) as Lt. Murtaugh. Very funny. The funniest thing is: the actor (Bodo Wolf) who did the German dubbing for Barry Jenner did the dubbing for René Auberjonois in DS9. I thought by myself: ha, Murtaugh is a changeling. He has Odo´s voice :lol:.

    Ooooops, I´m in the TOS thread, sorry......

    And now I'm totally annoyed to discover that I don't have Jason and the Argonauts on DVD! :(

    That happened to me recently. I could've sworn I had it on DVD but couldn't find it on my shelf! :)
