A Cultural History
Ahh...Earth 2,of course that makes perfect sense.One of the things that gives me a chuckle is that in the 3rd pic the us flag is upside down which is supposed to be a message of distress,still it was 1972 in america.One of the things I liked about six million dollar man was that it was one of a handful of movies/shows that used both real suits and prop suits during its run,I suppose because the real suits would only have been loaned out strictly for the duration of the filming of the episode.Damn it is really interesting and a little impressive what spacesuit prop history we have been able to discover because of this site.
Thanks Tim. I have to say, looking back over the six million dollar man posts, that I am impressed by the variety of suits used. As much as I enjoy watching the same suits pop up all over the place I like variety when in the same long running shows. Doctor who is like this as well - all sorts of suits. I haven't watched any SMDM episodes since back in the day. As a kid I had all the dolls, the annuals the board game and even one of the model kits, all now long gone. - sad
