    Sorry about that, I'd clean forgotten I'd asked before! :shrug:

    Watched a Get Smart last night featuring the lovely Antoinette Bower. She played Valerie, a KOAS agent bringing a secret formula into the country via talking baby dolls. The title was "Valerie of the Dolls." :lol:
    I think I may have already screen grabbed this one further back in the thread, and I'm too lazy to do it again. :D

    She looks so much better in everything I've seen her in other than "Catspaw".

    Decades is having a Lost in Space Marathon this weekend. Just peeking in now and then and I've seen Kang and Andrea.

    And during breakfast Sunday, I got Malachai Throne and Ted Cassidy being rather outrageous:

    She always gave me a latter day Liz Taylor vibe in "Catspaw". Probably the hair and wardrobe. :lol:

    Arthur Batanides, John Crawford and Abraham Sofaer also appeared in Lost in Space's third and final season!
    Batanides as a caveman alien who was trying to change into a higher form of life, Crawford as Dr.Chronos, the master of time and Sofaer as Sobram, last of an alien race obsessed with war!

    Dang, every episode I tuned in for seemed to have a Trek alumnus. I saw an Organian later on Sunday.

    Gary Lockwood and Lee Meriwether return to 12 O'Clock High as new characters ("The Idolator," Oct. 4, 1965)...noteworthy in Lockwood's case because he'd played a recurring character in two Season 1 episodes.

    This is probably one of the few times in the sixties that Ted Cassidy didn't have to dredge up the bottom of his vocal register. Something he did every single time he was heard on Star Trek.

    Caught part of a Tarzan ep this morning on H&I with Michael Dunn. He played some sort of Chinese crime boss, with fake eyelids and yellow-face makeup, cliche Chinese robes, and doing a cliche Chinese accent. Ah, the 60s. :alienblush:

    Just spotted in the background on a Christmas Day 1963 episode of The Virginian:

    One Step Beyond - "The Captain's Guests." This pair of salty old New England geezers seem familiar!

    John Lormer, who has touched the sky and dodged Landru, on the left, and Felix Locher - who's 29 years old - on the right.
    This is almost 10 years before they were on Trek, and they're already playing salty old geezers!
    How Robert Webber was never on a Trek episode is a mystery. He was certainly a popular guest star thru the 60s and 70s. Would'a made a good Commodore.

    Robert Webber would have been great as a high ranking Federation ambassador that irked Kirk, or even a belligerent Star Fleet Admiral ordering The Enterprise out on a suicide mission in hostile space!

    John Fiedler trying to convince Sidney Poitier's family that they'd be happier in another neighborhood, in A Raisin in the Sun (1961).

    Was Warren Stevens sporting a rug in a lot of his sixties appearances does anyone know? It's just his hairline never looked realistic and I'm sure I saw him bald in a fifties play with Richard Boone! I know he wore a hair piece in his later life though!
