In Search Of.. by Loneanimator In Search Of.. by Loneanimator
Leonard Nimoy rocked the sideburns and turtlenecks in the 70's while looking for monsters and other weird phenomena on this seminal TV show.

I think it would have been better if he were holding a crystal skull instead since, bigfoot is already in the background.  Still, this is cool and I loved that show.:D (Big Grin)

If any mystery is synonymous with "In Search Of.." it's Bigfoot :) That's why Nimoy is holding that footprint.

Great portrait as usual!  Still . . . I watched all the (supposedly) true strange phenomena shows and movies I could, from One Step Beyond to Unsolved Mysteries.  Heck, I caught most of those "Sunn Classic Films" in the '70s -- but I've never seen one second of In Search Of . . . :(

The History Channel is doing a new version of "In Search Of..." and I believe it's coming out in July. :) (Smile)

There will be no otherworldly mood music from a synthesizer, to be sure! But the remake might turn out to be good.

The Nimoy original is the best, of course. They did a revival some years ago with Mitch Pileggi as the host.

 On a more serious note, Mr Leonard Nimoy would have made a marvellous casting choice for a paranormal investigator in a Horror Movie - the local Ven Helsing, if you will!Nod

 Though that begs the question, which was MORE rocking - the actor or the outfit?;) (Wink)

Definitely the actor, as many of the outfits of the period were redolent of carpeting and old furniture coverings.

Nimoy's presenter wardrobe wasn't as bad as that for Herb Tarleck of WKRP, but there were a few offenders of distinction! :D

When the show hit the Eighties Nimoy went more to "hip TV professor" style of outfit, which was some sort of improvement.

Nimoy is good in anything :) But yes, a period piece with him playing one of those classic ghost hunters, like Carnacki or John Silence, would've been very cool.

I think he would fit right into that sort of profile, maybe even in the Lovecraft mythos. He could play one of the characters in his stories like Herbert West or the narrator of Whisperer in Darkness.

Another tv kid memory. I remember being freaked out by the vampire/dracula one when the old man staked that kid in his bed. Later on I saw that they clipped scenes from George Romero's Martin.

Bigfoot scared me, I thought he lived behind every collection of trees that I couldn't see through! Now I wish the big guy luck in evading us sick humans!

The Bigfoot & Yeti episodes were some of the best ones, no doubt! Yeah I was certain Bigfoot lived down in the woods at the bottom of the hill where my childhood home was located. Went back to visit some years ago and the entirety of it had been uprooted for a subdivision. So yeah, I understand what you mean about the Big Guy staying far away from us!

I think Bigfoot might be a modern variation of the ancestral memory we Homo sapiens had of encounters with the other human strains from the Paleolithic eras. Bigfoot will never Die!

As it so happens.... A series of TV specials about UFOs, alien contact, and cryptid creatures were made in the early-mid Seventies, and were popular enough that a TV show was pitched. Nimoy got picked to be the host, no doubt with an eye towards an audience and it ran for several seasons! My favorite site has the entire run of broadcast episodes and the initial TV specials.

I loved this show.
To me it was Mr. Spock teaching me on the frontiers of science...
When I saw Invader Zim and "The sad, sad tale of chickenfoot" I wanted to cry - hit me personally.
