    Strange, I'm not seeing your pictures show up in your post, but if I right-click them and open in a new tab, then I see them there. Also, I see them in my quote of your post as I am composing this post (edit: but not within the quote once I posted my post). :confused:

    Someone figured it's a glitch caused by TrekBBS being an https (secure) site, and my website host being a plain ol' http site.

    OK Who is this TOS trek alumni? I didn't recognize him, only after I looked his name and and google searched him did I know who he was. Seen on Mannix ( I do know his name and his trek roles)

    That explains why I couldn't successfully correct for camera distortion in PhotoShop. Linville's super-wide face wasn't camera distortion, it was just what you said it was, the TV stretching out the image. As the Argelian Prefect might say, "How can ANY man watch TV like that?"

    Sort of a T. J. Hooker precursor, The Rookies, "The Hunting Ground," 1975.

    That’s a really nice rug. It’s a natural extension of the Jim Kirk lace, but still teasing us with the bounty of curls to come.

    Which is an improvement on his toupee in The Six Million Dollar Man: "Burning Bright," which is just about the worst, scraggliest hairpiece I've ever seen on Shatner.

    I was struck when I saw Shatner in a 1973 production and realized his toupee looked the same as Kirk's hair in the animated series. I always figured his TAS character design just simplified his TOS hair for artistic convenience, but they actually based it on his contemporary appearance.

    I'm going to make your headache worse: Charlie was played by Robert Walker Junior, and he and his brother both look astonishingly like their father, Robert Walker Senior.

    That reminds me of seeing Strangers on a Train and marveling at the resemblance.

    Likewise, I once saw Alan Hale, Sr. in an old movie, and didn't know for sure if it was father or son (of Gilligan's Island).

    I used to think Nina Wayne and Carol Wayne were the same person, from their separate guest shots on Bewitched.

    And I always used to think it was Jerry Mathers (the Beaver) on that first-season episode of Bewitched. It was his brother Jimmy. Totally fooled me.

    While they don't appear on screen together they do share ending credits right next to each other.
    Byron Morrow/"Admiral Komack("Amok Time") & "Admiral Westervile" (For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky)
    and Vince Howard/"Uhura's crewman"(Man Trap) in Mannix "Run Till Dark" 1971

    GLW and Jason Evers in Gunsmoke, "Reprisal," 1962. She's given a big entrance down the stairs of the Long Branch.

    For some reason, in the showdown scene James Arness is on location while Evers in the reverse angle is on the soundstage, though Evers is also in a location shot with Arness.

    Also, Joseph Ruskin in "The Gallows."

    Maybe they ran out of time to film the reverse angle on location, or needed to reshoot it due to film or audio problems. Or maybe shooting the reverse angle on location would've given away a building or cityscape or something in the background (like how if you turned the camera around from the Metron planetoid in "Arena," you'd see the Cestus III outpost).

    That reminds me of something. In Moonraker, James Bond fights a henchman called Chang. According to the commentary track, the fight was filmed on location in Italy, but for a certain section of it, the reverse angles were shot in the studio at Pinewood. It flips back and forth between Italy and Pinewood as they fight.
