Thank you, but I'm not here for points. nottabot just wants to have fun!

I AM curious about the point difference, if there is one. Any info would be appreciated.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Here's some Green-blooded Spock info - I hope you find it interesting.

The original plan for Spock was a green complexion, and the makeup department delivered a green faced Spock. But the picture processing technology used at the time kept correcting his skin tone to 'human', so they eventually gave up on the green face and hoped the eyebrows and attitude would be enough.

That "green-blooded hobgoblin" was rendered Caucasian by accident!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

BONUS makeup fact(s) and more - Buddy Epson auditioned to be the original Tin Man in 'The Wizard of Oz' (1939) but he was allergic to the makeup and required hospitalization for it.

Ray Bolger was supposed to be the Tin Man also, but demanded to be Scarecrow and demonstrated his now-famous dance moves to get the part. It worked.

Jack Haley wound up in the role of Tin Man.

Dorothy (Judy Garland) wanted to keep the Toto because she loved it - but failed. I'm sure you know she was Liza Minelli's mother.

There's a reason the Cowardly Lion had a Brooklyn accent. The actor, Burt Lahr was from Brooklyn!

And just for kicks - when searching for a jacket for Dorothy's uncle (who also played Professor Marvel / The Wizard of Oz / The Gatekeeper / The Carriage Driver / The Guard), they bought a used jacket unclaimed from a dry cleaner. When searching the pockets, they saw a tag saying it originally belonged to L. Frank Baum - the author of the original book: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

After the book was released, it became the most popular book ever written - in human history (besides the bible). This achievement was eventually surpassed by the Star Trek series of books.But it took a series to do it.

OK, enough for now. that Wizard trivia never ends.

But check out Lolani when you get a chance. :-)

And Billie Burke, who played Glinda, was offered the role of the old spinster Aunt Pitty-Pat in Gone With The Wind. She turned it down and was almost immediately offered the role of the Good Witch in TWOO. She was 55 years old then, a time when most ladies that age were considered too aged and/matronly to play pretty women on film. Guess she showed them!

Thanks, love the trivia, most of it is new to me...I know a fair amount of trivia, but it's hard to bring it up on demand...right now the bit I keep thinking of is that Jerry Van Dyke turned down the role of Gilligan to act in "My Mother The Car" because he felt the premise of "Gilligan's Island" wasn't believable. That's because I had a My Mother The Car reply earlier today. As to the point's I have no idea...I've seen the point distribution explained a couple of times, but I think they weren't entirely correct. Thanks again for the trivia :)

I didn't know he was Dick's brother (until I looked him up just now). I knew you'd get a kick out of the Oz trivia - because they have a GREEN LADY too.

Bonus: Two of the green lady's flying monkeys were hospitalized when their harness broke. They were severely injured when they hit the floor. Also, the original director left mid-production to do 'Gone With the Wind'.

In some re-shoots, Dorothy can be seen wearing black shoes. And a different hairstyle. They made it to the final cut and theatrical release. You can see them if you really pay attention. There's a rumor that someone hung themselves in the forest (it's not true).

And there's a 1925 silent movie of the same name with Oliver Hardy (of Laurel and Hardy). It's an hour and twenty five minutes (available on YouTube). I haven't seen it yet.

There were plays and other adaptations - remember Michael Jackson in 'The Wiz'?

And of course, the prequel 'Wicked'. The novel is dark, but the play is amazing - great music. I have it in English, German, and Japanese. Idina Menzel skyrocketed to fame in it - so they chose her for 'Frozen'. In the book Wicked, we learn the green lady has a name. It's Elphaba - a play on the original author's name: L. Frank Baum. El-pha-ba. Get it?

We also learn why she was so desperate to get back her dead sister's shoes from Dorothy. The Wicked Witch of the East (who also has a name) was unable to walk, since birth. Elphaba cast a spell on the shoes their father gave her and she was able to walk with them. Eventually a house landed on her and Dorothy stole the family memento.

In the play, Joel Gray played the original Wizard on Broadway. He's Jennifer Gray's father. Jennifer starred in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Dirty Dancing. Joel Gray starred in 'Dance In the Dark, by Lars von Trier. Bjork was the lead , with David Morse, Peter Stormaire, and Catherine Denueve. This movie was shot with over 100 cameras simultaneously, and won many international awards for cinematography. This is also why Bjork wore her infamous swan dress to the Academy Awards. She did a duet on the soundtrack with Radiohead's Thom Yorke - but Bob Dylan won instead.

Here's the duet - Peter Stormare does the singing in the movie. Bjork's character is mental; she gets lost in the rhythms around her (trains, machines, etc...) and goes into delusions of being in a Hollywood musical:

Wow, my head is spinning...I know most of those actors, Joel Grey from Cabaret, David Morse from St. Elsewhere etc. About the only thing I can add is that after numerous attempts I was once able to get The Wizard Of Oz and Dark Side Of The Moon to sync and it may just be coincidence, but there was some pretty cool matchups. Dorothy watching an imaginary plane as the plane goes by in the song, "balanced on the biggest wave you race toward an early grave as she fall off the fence etc. The absolute coolest is when Dorothy is pleading to keep Toto and she's darting back and forth across the living g room. Her moves are perfectly synced with the percussion leading up to "Time". Started watching The Doomsday Machine on YouTube, but would like to see it all at once so I'll have to look for the opportunity. Thanks for the trivia, that's awesome!

When you're an Oomp you're an Oomp all the way, from your first Chewy Spree to your last dying day...always wanted to see a rumble between Oompa Loompa and Munchkins. I was aware that there was only one Munchkin left, but I didn't know that he passed. There was a rumor that The Munchkins molested Judy Garland on the set and a few months ago I heard it suggested that the sole remaining Munchkin should set the record straight, but as far as I know it never happened.

That picture got a lot of laughs out of me - thank you! :-)

I hadn't heard the rumor you mentioned. Well, I did NOW, but not before. There are a lot of them though. We'll have to wait for Liza to confirm or deny it now that we're in the #metoo era.

They guy actually died a few weeks ago in a nursing home. He probably wasn't in good enough shape to settle anything - even if he had knowledge of it. When the actor who played the 'mortician' died a few years ago, he was in his 90's. So I wouldn't believe anything from him either - could be demented. He used to fall asleep on interviews!

If I recall correctly, there were over 100 munchkins (maybe 118?) - they bused them in so I expect there was a variety of personalities involved. But in my opinion, I'm going with "No" on this one until something credible comes up.

Since you pointed it out, I'll keep my ears open and let you know if anything comes up. TFS.

And thanks for that picture - I like it a LOT. :-)

That was my first reaction: would he even remember and would he tell the truth if he could. I suspect we will never know for sure, but in the pound metoo era I would not be surprised if we get a verdict...in the words of the Boomtown Rats, " Guilty 'til proven guilty". I'm with you, though, innocent until proven guilty. Glad you enjoyed the picture...the premise of Oompa Loompas squaring off against Munchkins ala West Side Story cracked me up (usually when that happens nobody else gets it). :)

Man, you could do A LOT with that template. Have you featured it yet? For some reason it seems familiar - or maybe just FEELS right.

Oh yeah, and the communicator is out of this world! Still drooling about it over a year and a half after it was released.

I do own the Star Trek Transporter Coasters. They're the transporter 'pad' where the people stand, and they turn your drink different colors. I won't hammer you with links for a while, but if you're interested, you can do an image search and see what they're about.

Still haven't got the Star Trek Communicator Wall Panel - I'm trying to justify the purchase but can't. Check it out - it's great too. It has the swooshing door noise (motion activated), the red alert klaxon. The push button does the communicator whistle. It's also priced low enough for ANYONE to use in a home or cubicle.

I regret not getting the voice activated light dimmer with Majel Barret's voice responding. It's Next Gen tech, with graphics to match. The unit was no longer available last time I checked. They stopped production a few years back. But you would walk into a room, say, "Computer", and then your command. The ship's voice (Majel) would confirm it and execute it, just as the Enterprise(s) would respond - with sound effects to match. Next best thing to being on board - but I'll have to slingshot around the sun and do some time travel to get it when it was available. Check it out to see what we've missed.

And that's my report. Close Captain's Log.

One to beam up.

Did you notice there is a Star Fleet in Star Wars?

And a Gorn look-alike? Do an image search on "Bossk" and you'll see him. There are more, but I forget right now.

Many actors have been in both franchises - too many to list.

The Gorn episode? I hope he takes pictures in the iconic places. I'd like to see them if you can post a few in comments.

Remember Kirk's bamboo looking cannon? And him trying to get a spark? I do.This episode is famous for more reasons than one. Like the Wilhelm Scream, Kirk's clasped, double-fisted punch has become a Hollywood trope. And it's is appropriately called *The Star Trek Punch*. You can Google that for tons of great material and places it was used since.

Finally saw this, it was awesome! Now I need to go back and watch the episode again...had no idea each character and object had its own theme etc. Was always one of my favorite episodes (with my favorite quotation), but now it just may be my favorite...still looking for it e to watch "Lolani" :)
reply

With Spock, you'll hear - and recognize his theme. They made it bass heavy, like Vader's theme. Each of the SW characters have their own theme also. Even Rey.

I'm glad you liked the space-umentary. I didn't get the Ahab connection until they explained it. And of course, the wind sock!

Something tells me you'll enjoy Lolani even more. This one is straight out of the 60's, with fifty years of hindsight to make it even better. I thought it was well done, well-written, interesting, funny, socially relevant, a morality tale (like the originals), and filled a void with the Orion species we've only heard about in passing - mostly.

As a bonus, Lou Ferigno is on the Enterprise. He did a great job too.The same crowd brought back Apollo, so you know what to expect, story-wise.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to your review whenever you get to it.

Ten Foward!

That reminds me - according to two Trek novels, Kirk was the one who suggested a bar/lounge (Ten Forward) on the ship, as well as a separating saucer section. I forget which books, but I *think* they they are canon.

Don't worry, that's it for today's trivia. ;-)

Finally saw it...it was awesome! I just lost fifteen minutes worth of typing so I'll try to paraphrase what I just wrote. I had to do a double take when Kirk "jinxed" Spock...did I just hear that? I think this was very true to the original series, a very strong message. I was personally conflicted trying to balance The Prime Directive with compassion. Many times I thought the writers had absolutely painted themselves into a corner and was eager to see how they were going to get out. I love the fact that the actor that plays Scotty is a Doohan and I think the casting is impeccable. About fifteen years ago SciFi Network played the original series in order and my son and I watched them all. I remember talking to him each night about the message in each one and being surprised at how relevant they still were. The message(s) in "Lolani" may very well be more relevant today than when it was filmed. Thank you so much for telling me about this...it's awesome! :)

Ah haah. You see? You SEE? Satisfaction was guaranteed with this one.

I thought the message and the resolution the writers came up with were executed perfectly for the Trek genre, and today's society.

Btw, you probably know Scotty wasn't JUST a Doohan. He is the son of James. Perfect here and in other episodes.

I liked when Lou tried to buy the white lady - that was awesome! Well, the whole thing was out of the ballpark. It exceeded my expectations the entire episode.

OK, so which did you prefer? Lolani or Apollo? They're both great, but I prefer the GREEN guy and gal for the writing and the overall feeling I had watching it. THAT is entertainment!

Btw, I'm glad you liked it. :-)

Spot on...I loved Apollo because it was almost like finding a lost episode of the original, but overall I enjoyed Lolani more...the message was just so "in your face"...kind of like the half black half white episode with Frank Gorshin in the original.

Thank you sir. We'll add more text under here - until it runs out too! :-)

Since you've been such a good memer lately, here is an episode of Star Trek New Voyages with a Doomsday Machine. This was made before they switched to Star Trek Phase II. They changed the name when the quality went way up - but you will enjoy this one for many reasons.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVCXw1xJFJ4

This is the director's Cut, with a few minutes less run time than the original they did. And James Cawley is Kirk. He's the guy I mentioned a few million words ago. Elvis. And the man who remade the Enterprise bridge exactly, according to William Shatner.

I know you don't have much free time - neither do I. But I'm looking forward to the Director's Cut and will be making time for it very soon. The original version was more than good enough for me.

This is no Lolani, to be sure. Some of the graphics could use an upgrade, as happened when they changed names. Still, you'd better make sure your inertial dampeners are online. If you're willing to suspend disbelief, you're in for a treat.

Several 'actual' Star Trek production people worked on the project, and they kept adding more of them as time went on. They were able to grow because of early episodes like this.

Enjoy!

This is the one with primitive graphics and Spok's makeup. But the STORY is phenomenal.

Remember, they paid for *everything* out of their pockets - as well as a hefty fee to CBS for the right to make it.

Hey bt, glad you liked the episode!

I don't always guarantee satisfaction - but when I do I drink Saurian Brandy.

This one was so good I didn't want it to end. I especially liked when Future Kirk and Spok let you know they are from after The Search For Spock.

Cawley (Kirk/Elvis) designed the costumes - I'm sure you noticed the differences - now you know why.

Barbara Luna (from Mirror, Mirror) was the lady Decker settled down with. This was her second episode with the New Voyages/Phase II crowd.

All of the main actors have been swapped out since this episode - except for Scotty, I think. And maybe Uhura. It's hard to keep track of them all. :-)

Actually, that was my intent, although I knew it could be construed as the time portal giving birth.

You're very welcome. I watched this again today and enjoyed it even more than the non-Director's Cut.

I won't give away any spoilers, but I can tell you this:

Spock's makeup job might seem distracting at first. These were the early days, and they paid for everything themselves. The graphics in a few places are similarly primitive - before they attracted many more actual Trek production and graphic personnel. It shows, but paved the way for the other stuff I've linked to already.

The story alone here is enough to make you leave YouTube with a feeling of, "Hell Yeah!". They actually combine elements of several TOS episodes - and a movie to pull off a fan-produced Trek tour de force. Once you accept Spock's makeup and SOME of the CGI, you're going to want more when this one ends.

Satisfaction Guaranteed.

The 'Creative Producer' is Gene Roddenberry's son. Bones is played by a Kelley, although not DeFrorest's son.

You may recognize Malachi Throne. He played Commodoere Mendez in the Menagerie - and his voice was altered to be a Talosian 'Keeper'. The Talosian was portrayed physically by a woman though - you'll get this one from memory. Malachi was in three TOS episodes total, and played Pardek, a Romulan in TNG episodes Unification I and II. Leonard Nimoy was also in those episodes.

As a bonus, we get Barbara Luna from Mirror Mirror. Here she's just an Earthling, not from Starfleet or an a ship. She is still a hottie after all these years!

There is a voice-only role from an actor who was on both Voyager and Enterprise (the series). Here he plays a pair of... oops - almost gave away a MAJOR spoiler there. Sorry, you'll just have to wait.

Also, there is an actor from TOS episode The Doomsday Machine. Make sure to watch the end credit sequence.

This episode is like a 'love letter to Star Trek' and is made to feel not just like a 60's episode, but to make you feel you're right in front of your old television while NBC broadcasts it. They get extra credit for pulling it off superbly. And no, there's no television frame around the video. But YOU are going back in time, my friend. Tell 'em nottabot sent you. :-)
