    That Girl ("What Are Your Intentions?," Feb. 16, 1967).

    Paul Carr does not die in this episode (but he doesn't get the girl, either).

    Not the perfect place for this question, but maybe a good place to find the answer.

    Does anybody know whether it was Walter Koenig who voiced the person on the radio from the seismographic station in Athens in The Poseidon Adventure? It really sounds like Chekov's "accent" to me, but I haven't found out one way or the other. It's in the part of the film after the captain is called up to the bridge, after the toast to love, and before the countdown to the New Year.

    Trek music cues in maybe surprising places.

    At 1:50, over a recap of Steve Ditko’s place in the Golden and Silver Ages of comics, we hear “Trailer ("Mudd's Women")”

    Well, now that I can see his whole head, I still haven’t. (Thanks for the second pic.)

    Had to go to YouTube for that one, as the episode was off my DVR.

    Saw a Tarzan episode on H&I this morning with Leslie Parrish. Even in a stodgy safari outfit, the woman was breathtaking.

    An episode of the Partridge Family I saw this morning (don't judge me) featured William Schallert as an old folk singer!

    He wasn't half bad, either

    Watching the movie, The Green Berets. The actor, Jason Evers, who plays Capt Coleman played Rael in the Trek episode, Wink of an Eye.
    Of course, this movie also features George Takei as Capt Nim

    He went grey fast. Within two years he was on Star Trek, and in the Disney film "The Moon Spinners" with completely white hair.

    I kind of assumed Daly's gray hair in "Requiem" was a wig or a dye job.

    Saw William Schallert in an episode of Johnny Ringo recently and in it he had only one leg! Obviously he had it tucked under his knee but it was very well done for a 1959 cowboy show I must admit!

    It's possible, and possible that he liked the look. But he was born in 1918, and 50 years is long enough to grey out. He may have even done the dye job for 12 O'Clock High.


    Edited because sometimes I suck at math.

    I think there’s some syrup with that pancake.

    I’m pretty sure you can see the lace in photo on the right.

    Alan Landers from The Invaders episode, Beachhead I'm guessing! Nowadays you can sure see the folding line in the hair but back then you'd never have guessed unless you knew!

    I'm a bit late thinking to bring this up, but Decades has been doing a Mod Squad Binge this weekend...good opportunity for TOS twofers with Bob and whoever else shows up for a particular episode.

    The latest episode of The Mod Squad binge had Clint Howard in it.
    An earlier episode had William Schallert as a priest opposite Sammy Davis Jr.
