    A few more from The Streets of San Francisco...

    Windom got "special guest star" billing, over Richard Basehart.

    Doing scenes with a future governor of California, who would have guessed?

    Byron Morrow and Mariette Hartley in The Rockford Files, "Paradise Cove," 1979. They were in one shot together, but a ways apart.

    I notice that the photos have all disappeared! Is that anything to do with Photo Bucket?

    I'm a big fan of the Dallas series that ran from the late 70's to the early 90s. Many guests from TOS appeared on this series, some of them prominently--especially Morgan Woodward (Punk Anderson) and William Smithers (Jeremy Wendell).

    William Windom also appeared on Dallas in two episodes as the slimy Amos Krebbs. Echoing his performance as Matt Decker, Windom's performance as Krebbs was memorable enough that one primary cast member (Steve Kanaley) called Windom's guest performance his favorite of the entire series.

    What I didn't realize was that Woodward and Windom acted together on the same episode and in the same scene (although they never interacted with each other)!

    ^ That's great! I miss Windom and Jim Davis. And best wishes for Woodward!

    Two of the most unforgettable voices in Westerns there, Davis and Woodward.

    Too bad that Morgan Woodward didn't play one of the Earps in Spectre of the Gun.

    But my Lord if he had, we'd still be debating it to this day if Kirk had envisioned Wyatt Earp in the form of his old friend and recent adversary Captain Ronald Tracey, wouldn't we!!! :brickwall:

    That's odd! Why would that be just this end? :(

    Charles Napier in an Incredible Hulk ep yesterday, thrown in a sweatbox by bad guys, singing a little I've-been-thrown-in-a-sweatbox-by-badguys ditty. Not as good as his numbers on The Way to Eden.

    Charles Napier had an interesting history with The Incredible Hulk. After Ted Cassidy died, Charles Napier was brought in to do the grunts and snarls of the Hulk, so his appearing in an episode is a bonus for him.

    One would not have expected Ruk and Adam to play the same role...

    George Takei in a Twilight Zone episode 'The Encounter'. It was only broadcast once and then CBS yanked it. I watched it today and thought it was kind of controversial for the 1960's, but frankly It wasn't one of the best TZ episodes. The whole show was confined to a man's dusty attic.

    Just spotted Eddie Paskey in a non-speaking cameo in the first episode of Mission: Impossible. :lol:

    He'll be back later in the season, playing a Hollywood stand-in who helps out on a mission by being, well, a stand-in for the guy they're kidnapping. I like to imagine he was playing himself, although he had a different character name in the credits.

    Good to know...looks like he's in two other early episodes that I've got, including the Takei episode.
