    In Columbo "Candidate for Crime" from 1973, Davis Roberts (Dr. Ozaba from "The Empath") and the lovely Joanne Linville (Romulan Commander from "The Enterprise Incident") as the prime suspects wife. Excellent episode of Columbo, BTW.

    The 1989 TV movie "Twist of Fate" starred Ben Cross and Bruce Greenwood, who would cross paths 20 years later in Star Trek (09) as Sarek and Christopher Pike respectively. John Glover, who had a role in DS9, also appears in a rare turn as a good guy.

    Flipping through the channels and I stumbled across Warren Stevens holding Fess Parker's family hostage in an episode of Davy Crockett.

    Joseph Cotton told a reporter in 1963 that it was the most expensive pilot of all time at that point — $350,000 over budget.

    There were a LOT of extras in the troops! I'm not sure if the battle scenes were stock footage or staged for the show, but they were vast.
    One thing they got wrong historically - they gave Alexander a girlfriend.

    A little off the wall since we're talking about TV and movies, but I found that William Shatner was in a handful of episodes of Rod Serling's 1973-1974 radio anthology drama series "The Zero Hour." I listened to one of these, in which Shatner played a private detective hired to thwart a pair of blackmailers. No visuals to go with this, unless somebody has a photo of him in the recording studio!

    I just saw Paul Fix and Frank Gorshin listed in the end credits of a Western movie entitled 'Ride Beyond Vengeance'.

    I can't find the post about Marianna Hill in The Astral Factor! It's odd as I saw that movie last week and it was a very poor transfer but the original message seems to have disappeared?
