    Just re-watched the pilot for Hec Ramsey (1972). Found Trek alums Paul Carr (WNMHGB) robbing Sharon Acker (TMOG).

    I've found Paul Carr surprisingly ubiquitous in '60s-'70s TV.

    We've definitely mentioned actors from the TOS movies here before, tho my personal preference (which counts for nothing) is to stick to the TV series. Unless I don't. :D

    I mentioned him, I just feel the need to make it clear when I'm bringing up non-TOS actors as an aside, because when I've done it without the clarification, people have felt the need to point out that I was bringing up non-TOS actors.

    And while "TOS movies" is a convenient umbrella shorthand, "The Original Series" is a retroactive subtitle specifically applied to the '60s television series, to distinguish it from all the other Trek properties that have sprung up over the years. Each of the TOS movies is a separate production that already has its own subtitle, and most of them have Roman numerals as well. "The Original Series" was never made part of their already sufficiently distinguished titles.

    Ha, their hairstyles make it look like their ears are pointed.

    Not in the actual clip. It looks like whoever posted that video altered the screencap to point Nimoy's ear.

    I just watched Reverend Burgess Meredith join Rich Little and Emily Banks in holy matrimony (Love, American Style, "Love and the Hypnotist," Oct. 9, 1970).

    I'm watching Cinematic Titanic's 'Frankenstein's Castle of Freaks' on Shout! Factory's MST3K Channel and there's Michael Dunn as the hunchback assistant.
    IMDB says this was released in 1974-75 and Michael died in 1973, so this must be his final role.

    According to flashbacks, they're supposed to be about the same age, though Peter Graves was nine years older.

    Meanwhile, Paris regales the rest of the IMF gang with the story of the bravest little Hobbit of them all...

    If you need somebody to rough up Chuck Connors, you need somebody almost as big as him.

    The plot once again deals with a local bumpkin populace not believing in a vaccine (diptheria this time), and ridiculing the new British doctor ("A darn fool woman! And a foreigner to boot!").
