    That's the thing that makes the film funny!!! I wonder if they could have got Laurence Olivier eventually? :rofl:

    By the late 70s, Olivier was 'slumming it' in movies like the Langella Dracula and The Betsy.

    Besides Airplane 2, a year earlier Shatner was the guest on the ABC Saturday Night Live comedy sketch and music knockoff Fridays. I can't locate any clips online, unfortunately.

    Got the new Jonny Quest Blu-Ray edition. In the closing titles of episode one I noticed Vic Perrin's name as a voice actor!

    Watching Collossus: The Forbin Project on Blu-ray last night and there's the omnipresent William Schallert as Director Graubert of the CIA.

    I'm glad to know that exists. When I watched it on DVD a few years ago, it seemed the only available edition was an edited-for-TV, pan-and-scan version. I presume the Blu-Ray would be from the original master.

    Yes, Shout Factory has issued it on blu-ray, in widescreen, and it's looking pretty good. Been a few years since I'd seen the film and I still find it entertaiining. I found it here: https://www.amazon.com/Colossus-Pro...vies-tv&sprefix=forbin+project,aps,223&sr=1-1

    Oh, then maybe they'll put it on their free streaming site eventually. I'll have to watch out for it.

    Universal only licensed the physical rights. Colossus won't be showing up on Shout! Factory TV anytime soon.

    Watching The Gallant Hours starring James Cagney as Admiral "Bull" Halsey, and there's William Schallert (what movies/television shows was this guy not in?) in an uncredited role as Capt. Lanphier of the USAAF.

    (Also in this film is Ward Costello who appeared in a couple of TNG episodes as Admiral Quinn.)

    For which, I believe, Hartley won an Emmy.

    Yes she did.It was the first time, and for decades the only time, someone won an acting award (Oscar or Emmy variety) for a genre program or film. Many have been nominated since, but the second time someone won was recent (it might have even been Heath Ledger for playing the Joker, I don't remember).

    There were a few prior examples. Fredric March won the Academy Award for Best Actor for DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE back in thirties, Ruth Gordon won Best Supporting Actress for playing a Satanist in ROSEMARY'S BABY.

    Since, yes, Ledger won for the Joker, and Whoopi Goldberg also picked up an Oscar for her role in GHOST.
