    Looks like Jim West isn't of The Body...

    Timely rerun of Wild Wild West from 1-6-67 given that this week is "Return of the Archons" rerun week! (I don't think Harry Townes even had to change his wardrobe...)

    Now THAT's a devil! Julie Newmar as a satanic time-travel agent in the Twilight Zone episode "Of Late I Think of Cliffordsville."

    Phillip Pine visits the Twilight Zone as a friend of Toy designer Pat Hingle, who is obsessing way too much over his childhood, in "The Incredible World of Horace Ford."

    This features a truly amazing performance by Hingle as a man who is already child-like by nature, gradually losing his grip on adulthood and drowning in a childhood which he may or may not be remembering well.

    That said, the "psychotic nostalgia" plot happens WAY too often on TZ.

    Also appearing in that episode was William Wintersole:

    Not the same costume, though.

    The other day I was astounded to see Teri Garr (Assignment: Earth) show up as Phoebe's mom on Friends.

    That seems like a pretty natural choice -- they kind of resemble each other.

    Spotted Celia Lovsky ("T'Pau") in an episode of ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS. She played a wealthy older woman who is being slowly poisoned by her favorite waitress, who the old lady has generously included in her will.

    “In his hand are the deep places of the earth.” Psalm ninety five, verse four. Looks like he was listening, Joe.

    Starring Rodney Allen Rippy. Thank God he and Gary Coleman were too young for Star Trek. Coleman was on Buck Rogers, and we all know how that went.

    After a season of 1-hour episodes, Twilight Zone returned to the 1/2 hour format for their 5th season, and knocked it out of the park with the beautifully written, utterly heartbreaking "The Long Morrow," starring Robert Lansing and Mariette Hartley.

    I wasn't aware at first whom Rodney Allen Rippy was during the episode?
    And even after seeing that he is getting on in age these days from his role as the young kid with the broken up bike, I still didn't know who he is??? :lol:

    I just remember him as a cute kid who was popular for being popular. I think he got started in a commercial or something, then he'd pop up here and there, so audiences would go "Hey! There's Rodney Allen Rippy!"

    I am 2 seasons into the 1960s Mission Impossible and it seems to be filled with actors who worked on Stsr Trek, or vis versa........so many in fact that i feel they were walking from one show to the other. Lol
