    I think from the set of either The Mummy's Hand or The Mummy's Tomb at Universal in the early 1940s...

    Just before leaving the US to return to the Soviet Union, Leonid Brezhnev gives a warm goodbye hug to Chuck "The Rifleman" Connors (1973)

    [​IMG]

    Wiki:

    Connors was introduced to Leonid Brezhnev, the leader of the Soviet Union, at a party given by Nixon at the Western White House in San Clemente, California, in June 1973. Connors presented Brezhnev with a pair of Colt Single Action Army "Six-Shooters" (revolvers) which Brezhnev liked greatly. Upon boarding his airplane bound for Moscow, Brezhnev noticed Connors in the crowd and went back to him to shake hands, and jokingly jumped up into Connors' towering hug. The Rifleman was one of the few American shows allowed on Russian television at that time; that was because it was Brezhnev's favorite. Connors and Brezhnev got along so well that Connors traveled to the Soviet Union in December 1973. In 1982, Connors expressed an interest in traveling to the Soviet Union for Brezhnev's funeral, but the U.S. government would not allow him to be part of the official delegation. Coincidentally, Connors and Brezhnev died on the same day, ten years apart.​

    As a big Chuck Connors and The Rifleman fan, I have to say that was one cool story that I'd never heard before. That's great that The Rifleman was viewed by the Russian public above all the other US tv fare. Thanks for posting.

    Leonard Nimoy beaming onto The Carol Burnett Show (1967). TTBOMK this episode was never syndicated and has never been released on home video.

    Could this have been the first time Nimoy spoofed the character of Spock?

    And here's Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy clowning around on the set, circa 1929. Amazing quality in this photo.

    Don't recognize him? Here he is under rather less pleasant circumstances 20 or so years later:

    Steve Ralisback's uncanny performance as the late mass murderer in the 1976 TV movie, Helter Skelter, is still frightening.

    That's Dana Wynter and Kevin McCarthy in front of the camera, which is I think a Mitchell BNC shooting the short-lived 35mm SuperScope format. (Courtesy of the Behind the Clapboard Facebook group.)
