Video: Rare TV Pilot with Steve “Hercules” Reeves!

Posted in Movies, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Television, Video with tags , , , , , on June 28, 2011 by ghostradioworld

This is the only chapter filmed for a proposed television serial.  It stars a very young Steve Reeves (who would gain fame in the sixties playing Hercules in a series of international hit movies produced in Italy) as the Tarzan-like Kimbar.  This pilot was made in 1949

It’s no surprise this didn’t go any farther.  The dialog is substandard, and the acting worse.   But Reeves makes an impression.  And it’s an interesting curio.  Neither Wikipedia nor imdb makes any mention of this production in Reeves’ credits.  But if their other credits are correct this would be his first onscreen appearance.

More 3D evangelism from two big budget filmmakers.  We’re not 3D bashers.  But Cameron can go a bit too far at times.

Photo: Crusader Cross Crop Circle!

Impressive new crop circle formation.  Lucy Pringle, the crop circle expert who photographed it, had this to say about its design:

It has a resemblance to a Cross Clechee with arms spreading out gradually from the centre. This cross denotes knowledge, guardianship, and dominion …  Similar to the Cross Toulouse, it is assumed that the bearer of this cross was a crusader from the area of Toulouse.

The Cross Clechee is also called the “key cross”, and as Ms. Pringle suggests, it is similar to the Cross Toulouse.  And both the Cross Clechee and the Cross Toulouse were used exclusively by crusaders from Toulouse.

Why a crop circle would resemble a Toulousean Crusader cross is unclear.  Something tells us we have to pull out all our “Da Vinci Code” research again.   And, frankly, we’re kinda sick about reading about the Knights Templar.

This image was discovered by Italian Mars enthusiast Matteo Lanneo via the Google Mars site.  Lanneo sees a resemblance between this profile and Indian civil rights leader Mahatma Gandhi.  We don’t see that.   But it definitely resembles a bald man seen in profile.  A little chubbier than Gandhi though.  Our pal on Twitter @insideniagara said:

Looks like Oliver Hardy without his bowler hat. #;)

Gotta love that!  And for more such witticisms why don’t you follow Inside Niagara here.

Photo of the Week: Kirk vs. Kirk!

This photo was snapped during the production “William Shatner’s The Captains” a new series in which Shatner interviews all the Star Trek Captains.  Yup, all of them:  Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, Scott Bakula and Chris Pine (above).  Shatner explains how the photo came about:

[Pine’s] shy. So the way I started the interview, I put out a table and chairs outside the Paramount gates, and arm-wrestled with him. That was the beginning of my interview with him. I think it broke the ice, that’s for sure.”

Frankly, we think the Shat should have challenged Pine to a “flying kick” competition.  But maybe that’s just us.

We about a year and a half from the theatrical release of The Hobbit.  But that’s not too soon to get a bit of a peek into the production with these three exclusives from Entertainment Weekly.  We get our first look at Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins (above).  And quite a Bilbo he makes too.  Here’s what P.J. has to say about him:

He fits the ears, and he’s got some very nice feet … I think he’s got the biggest hobbit feet we’ve had so far. They’re a little bit hard to walk in, but he’s managed to figure out the perfect hobbit gait.

And speaking of feats, Ian McKellan is  doing one of the hardest feats in the movie business: Playing younger.  See how he fares after the jump.
