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

Good old Nimoy! I loved that freaky show back in the 70's.

Lots of people have fond memories of being creeped out by "In Search Of.." It's good stuff :)

Hello, I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true, and by true I mean false. It's all lies, but they're entertaining lies, and in the end isn't that the real truth? The answer...is "no"

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 . . . :(

Sometimes I've found episodes posted on YouTube.

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

Yes, I saw an ad on TV. Not sure about it right now, but you never know....

I'm willing to check out a few episodes and give it a chance. Wink/Razz

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

I loved this show growing up, I've heard they're doing a new one.

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

Yeah, he was really rocking that groovy TV detective look in many episodes.

 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 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.

It's a no-nonsense show, for the time it was being produced.
