Three Men and a Baby

Who else could rein in the conflicting primal forces of Selleck, Guttenberg and Danson but the cool, calculating Nimoy? Interesting thing, our Len’s behind-the-camera career – besides two St*r Tr*k films (sorry, but it’s a no-go area, as is all mention of St*r W*rs, unless it’s to do with either Jeremy ‘Fett’ Bulloch or William ‘Porkins’ Hootkins) there was the fondly-remembered US take on Look and Read’s Boy From Space that was The Powers of Matthew Star, several iffy romantic comedies, a Fantastic Voyage-style EPCOT Centre ride, Mission: Impossible of course, the odd homoerotic Jean Genet play and, er, TJ Hooker. Well, it’s interesting to us, anyway. Mind you, so was Lenny’s brightly-jumpered ’80s Clapperboard variant Standby, Lights, Camera, Action, and no-one else seems to give a toss about that, either. Ah, well.

    I had no idea “Standby… Lights! Camera! Action!” was shown in Britain. I liked that programme a lot – different aspects of filmmaking (I remember Sammy Cahn was on one episode and wrote a whole song about the crew), good looks at upcoming movies that didn’t go utterly overboard, and it’s impossible to imagine Nickelodeon (for it was them) having anything like it today. “Let’s go to the movies…”

    Will I be barred from this site for admitting that I have more time for “Star Trek” and “Star Wars” than for bloody D*ct*r Wh*, by the way?

    Has anyone mentioned Ted Danson’s stupendously dodgy blackface routine at the Whoopi Goldberg roast yet?
