Lets see how many can remember this old show (and guess it’s name).

It had an episode where William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy were featured together 2 years before Star Trek was aired and other episodes where James Doohan made an appearance.
At one time or another episodes also featured as guest stars such celebrities as Joan Crawford, Vincent Price, Kurt Russell, Leslie Nielson, Sharon Tate and Werner Klemperer.

Any guesses?

Yeah. Not too hard with IMDb as your friend. wink

But I wouldn’t have known the answer otherwise, having never watched the show.

Um, The rifleman or Gunsmoke?

Cool, that was my 63rd choice after The Lieutenant and Playhouse 90, whose name I couldn’t remember and which was too early anyway, and far too many others I knew of but couldn’t think of off hand.

Not really all that surprising.  They were mostly character actors at the time, and character actors have always made their living by appearing in as many different projects as humanly possible.  Watch a few episodes of Hawaii Five-O or Adam 12 and you’ll start to think that there were only about a dozen rotating actors working in Hollywood during the 70s.  And from what I’ve seen of British television the same thing applied there, at least in comedies.  You could easily play Seven Degrees of David Jason, for example.

I can remember watching the show religiously when I was young.  Along with The Rat Patrol it was one of my favorites.

Although I don’t remember any of the specifics, I do recall watching Rat Patrol every weekend.  That was a cool show!

Twilight Zone would have been a good guess as just about everybody starred in it at some time or other, but I remember all of the Shatner episodes too well.  I’d have remembered if Nimoy was in one.

I’d have remembered if Nimoy was in one.

Let’s see, Leonard Nimoy was in the Twilight Zone episode that had a bunch of US military people in the Philippines at the end of WWII, if I remember correctly.  While Shatner was in that one with the gremlin on the airplane wing.

They were also both in episodes of The Outer Limits:  Shatner in one about an astronaut who went to Venus and came back changed, and Nimoy in. . .umm. . .I forget what it was about, now.
