    I saw Celia Lovesky in the One Step Beyond episode "Message from Clara" last week, but I failed to get a screen grab. :(

    Is that the one where George and Steve Austin go mountain climbing to find out what happened to Steve's real dad?

    On the Cinerama screen, in glorious Technicolor.
    Though I like Fix in just about every movie I’ve seen him in, he’s so sorely out of place in WNMHGB. It’s about as strange to see as the screen tests of Leslie Nielsen as Judah Ben-Hur. Though, paradoxically, Fix plays the old country doctor character type in EL DORADO, filmed the following year, and he fits right in there. He just lacked that certain something that De had to translate the characterization into a sci-fi setting.

    It was indeed, Form! But the mission was actually to reach his Father's wrecked plane in the mountains near the Himalayas and Steve wanted to clear his Father's name as he had been declared as a coward! His co-pilot turned out to be the real culprit as his Father died in the crash and George, he got shot and died! :wah:

    DeForest Kelley in Perry Mason "The Case of The Unwelcome Bride". Kelley plays the accountant stepson-in-law who is about to be passed over for partnership in the investment firm he's worked hard for, while his step-brother-in-law, who only wants the money, is going to get it all, if he'll only divorce his wife. Despite a lot of thoughtful close-ups in the court room, he's not the killer (thankfully).

    Interesting that De Kelley appeared on Perry Mason, as he did a pilot for a character based on the same real person Perry Mason was based on. There's reference, and a link to the pilot on Youtube, somewhere on the forum, perhaps even in this thread. I don't have time to look for it now.

    Yeah, "333 Montgomery" on Alcoa Theatre, a failed Gene Roddenberry pilot from 1960 burned off on an anthology show. I can't find the video anymore; maybe it was pulled.

    Just caught Teri Garr on an episode of Murphy Brown playing herself. She's backstage waiting go on Letterman and Murphy causes her to get flustered and she bombs on-air with Dave. Garr is funny and lovely as usual, and in real life was a frequent guest of Late Night when Dave was still at NBC

    Said pilot was 333 Montgomery.

    The character De plays is based on the real Jake Ehrlich, who was the model for television lawyers Perry Mason and Sam Benedict.

    Here's the open...
