Discussion in 'Star Trek - The Original & Animated Series' started by Maurice Navidad, Mar 12, 2013.
Or even HEARING her, as she was the original voice of Lucy in the Peanuts specials...
As I type this, there's an episode of The Rifleman on featuring a stern schoolmaster who must be an ancestor of Kodos the Executioner....
Though I remember Gene Dynarski well from '60s, '70s and '80s shows, my first thought was to Seinfeld and that Mannix must have been picking on his dad. "Mandelbaum! Mandelbaum! Mandelbaum!"
Not the original (Tracy Stratford), nor the one from "The Great Pumpkin" (Sally Dryer) but the next one.
Mannix vs. T'Pring. In a 3rd season ep called "Murder Revisited", Arlene Martel appears as twins! One hot, one mousey. Naaah, even when she tries to be mousey she's hot.
Just saw three consecutive Man from UNCLE episodes with Trek guests: "The Arabian Affair" with the late Michael Ansara and Robert Ellenstein (inexplicably, since he was playing a character two decades older and wearing bad old-age makeup), "The Tigers Are Coming Affair" with Jill Ireland and Lee Bergere, and the rather incoherent "The Deadly Toys Affair" with Arnold Moss and John Hoyt, though Angela Lansbury was the main guest.
Was that the one with Jill Ireland in a skimpy bikini? 'Cause that was awesome.
No, no bikini in this one, as far as I recall (and I think I would).
There's an obscure 70s sci-fi thriller called CHOSEN SURVIVORS which top-bills Jackie Cooper. Eleven characters spend their post-nuclear war battling underground vampire bats. Among the lucky few who survive are Diana Muldaur and Barbara Babcock.
Last week I got Season 1 of Adventures of Superman, starring George Reeves. It's black and white, released around 1952 or 1953. In "The Runaway Robot", I recognized John Harmon as a two-bit crook. He was the Rodent who kills himself with McCoy's phaser in TOS: The City on the Edge of Forever, and Tepo in TOS: A Piece of the Action.
This episode starred Russell Johnson as the boss bad guy. Johnson was veteran of science fiction films during the 50s and 60s, but most famous as The Professor on Gilligan's Island. Apparently he wanted to do Star Trek, but never got a chance.
Me-TV played a few episodes of Mod Squad the other week. This show already has a strong Trek connection, with one of the stars being Tige (Bob the Discount Klingon) Andrews, and one of the producers being Harve Bennett. But in addition to that, one episode featured William (Nilz Baris) Schallert as Sammy Davis Jr.'s boss in the priesthood, and another had Warren (Rojan) Stevens out to settle an old score with Vincent Price.
Vincent Price would've made an awesome Klingon. If only...
For TNG fans, another episode had Andy Griffith witness a murder committed by Stanley (Kosinski from "Where No One Has Gone Before") Kamel.
Hm. Maybe that was It Takes a Thief. Off to IMDB!
Nope - Man From UNCLE, S3, ep 28 "The Five Daughters Affair":
Well THAT was refreshing!
Oh, and, also, Kim Darby was in that episode.
^Well, I do know this wasn't Ireland's final UNCLE appearance. She was married to David McCallum at the time, and thus made several guest appearances, though only the first two were as the same character.
EDIT: Oops, a couple of posts snuck in before me. Spoilers! I'm only up to early season 2 so far.
Bless you, Forbin
Ya got something to look forward to!
Also, a great Romulan. I think he would have been cast best as Koridian/Kodos personally.
I don't know... what was great about Price was that he could be menacing, debonair, and snidely funny all at once -- like Colicos as Kor, DeLancie as Q, or Robinson as Garak. There wasn't much room for humor in Kodos.
