A Cultural History
Black silver spacesuit= Outer Limits episode Second Chance. It went on to show up in Star Trek's second pilot Where No Man Has Gone Before, Battlestar Galactica episode Take The Celestra and Buck Rogers Space Vampire. Pictures of it today can be found here:http://www.byyourcommand.net/cylongallery/thumbnails.php?album=650I often wondered if this was truely made for The Outer Limits and perhaps it was just another piece from a rental house like most of the other stuff used on the show.
Cheers for that SWGhostbuster, all very interesting stuff. Looking at the dates I'd say Space Probe Taurus had it after the Outer Limits so still might be original to that show. And Star Trek had it the year after Space Probe Taurus. All seems to fit in very nicely. I bet it was used in a number of other places between that and Battlestar. Any one else know of anything?
I truly wonder:Two suits in both Space Probe Taurus and Battlestar but not Outer Limits.Typically movies are filmed a year or two before release which is the date on IMDB. A side note the sliver jumpsuits used in Battlestar Galactica "Take The Celestra" are somewhat patterned off this suit. They have the padded vest in silver not black.
Men into Space(1959)suits pop up in several early 60's Outer Limits as well Buck Rogers. Which might suggest you're right about these and they were made for something earlier than that Outer Limits and which had multiple suits - I'll keep an eye out. getting to the bottom of this sort of thing is one of the treats of doing this blog
That alien looks like a loaf of bread that overexpanded from too much yeast.
Bread based life forms, now there's an idea you could hang a short story off
I watched The Ice Pirates the other day and Roscoe is wearing a brown and bronze version of this suit?!? And there are a couple other variations of color as well!
I've never had the pleasure of Ice Pirates....Is it? a pleasure, that is?
I enjoyed it,its good silly fun and they even reuse some of the city of domes footage from logans run
I wouldn't say it was a block buster but a rather fun film.
