Garry Walberg in The Condemned, an episode of The Invaders!
On March 1, 2019 I watched an episode of Tales of Wells Fargo on Heroes & Icons, "Rifles for Red Hand", originally aired 15 May 1961. In it Stanley Addams ("The Trouble With Tribbles" & "More Tribbles, More Troubles") portrayed Sam Tustin, a much more sinister character than Cyrano Jones.
One thing that's rather unique with The Invaders is that they would start each episode by giving a visual list of the guest stars. They don't do that anymore. More often than not the guest would play a bad guy ( a human traitor or an Invader).
Far from unique -- it was common in '50s and '60s shows, and a routine feature of Quinn Martin shows like The Invaders. It even persisted into the '70s in some cases. I'm pretty sure Wonder Woman did for at least part of its run.
Here we see actor Robert Lansing inspecting the title card for contractual percentage compliance.
Why is it "Mr. Seven" and not Gary Seven? I guess it is more respectful. "Seven" is an odd surname.
Perhaps because they were a little unsure of what first name they wanted him to have. While he was Gary Seven in the original, non-Trek-connected half-hour pilot script from 1966, the December 5, 1967 series pitch document by Roddenberry & Art Wallace (dated between the first and revised first drafts of the episode script) names him Anthony Seven. Maybe they'd already contractually determined the screen credits before they made the final decision on the character name.
I caught Barbara Luna last night as Hawk's mate, Koori, on Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.
You caught her? Lucky you! Did you let her go?
I've sent her a couple of FB requests but she's never added me!
Jason Evers, Antoinette Bower, Robert Hitchcock, Shep Houghton, Monty O'Grady in Condition:Red, an episode of The Invaders!
To think there were only like forty episodes of that series!
France Nuyen graced, with many costume changes, an episode of The Magician entitled "The Illusion of the Lost Dragon."
Also present, though not Trek Alumni, were the ubiquitous Soon Taik Oh, and Quai Chang Cain's venerable master, Philip Ahn. The villian, for heaven's sake, was played by Dr. No!
Speaking of Quai Chang Cain, I really liked "Kung Fu", I don't think I would have liked it better if Bruce Lee had had the role.
Forty three to be exact and it's a classic! Even Jack Lord graced his presence on the series with Alfred Ryder in Vikor, an episode about a human industrialist aiding the invasion by mass producing the regeneration tubes here on earth!
We'll never know, but I agree it was a great series. Still one of my faves.
Just saw Stanley Adams in a small role in Mannix and now Madalyn Rhue (sp) is playing the wife of a gangster on Cannon.
Not Ricardo Montalban, again?
In this week's 50th anniversary episode of Get Smart, "Leadside," Paul Carr played the henchman of the title character, a half-baked spoof of Ironside. Carr fell backwards out of Max's apartment window during a fencing duel between Max and Leadside, in which Carr was pushing the wheelchair back and forth.
