    I'm sure we're all aware that William Shatner stated in an early 70s movie with Ernest Borgnine and John Travolta called 'The Devil's Rain'.
    What I didn't know until I watched a retro-review on YouTube is that the mold used to cast the make-up Shatner wears later in the movie when he's possessed was later turned into the Captain Kirk Halloween mask, which was subsequently used by director John Carpenter as the mask Michael Meyers wears in the first 'Halloween' movie.
    The retro-review even showed a clip from 'The Devil's Rain' where Shatner tilts his head the same way Michael Meyers does. It's eerie.

    I thought the mask was from the days Shatner appeared in Trek?

    I must have some screen grabs from Devil's Rain back in this thread somewhere.

    So the mask wasn't taken from an unused Trek episode but from this film then? :crazy:

    And as far as I can tell, that's just eye appliances, not a full mask.

    Oh - popped in a Twilight Zone disk during dinner last night, and ended up watching Nick of Time, the one with Shatner and his fiance trapped in a little Ohio diner by a fortune telling machine.

    I recall Shatner said, I think in the lat
    I was actually startled in this episode when Nick and his wife cross the street. It was really Shatner, and it sure looks like they

    It was either a lucky inadvertency or a daring stunt.

    John Lormer popped up again on Branded already, just a few eps after his first appearance, in a different role. "Now Join the Human Race" also costarred Burt Reynolds as an Apache!

    Just caught Emily Banks as a junior college English teacher with a student who was inspired to kill a couple of people by reading Flaubert (Dragnet 1970, "Homicide – The Student," Sept. 25, 1969).
