Look and Learn was a British weekly educational magazine for children published by Fleetway Publications Ltd from 1962 until 1982.

Romeo + Juliet (1996)

I really hated this film when it first came out, so much so that I've never sat down and watched it again.  I wonder if it still remains the great misjudged monumental fail I perceived it to be 20 years ago?

Doctor Who The Space Pirates (1969)

Almost forgot this one.
From a small clip of all that remains of episode 1 of this 6 part story starring Patrick Troughton as the 2nd Doctor
Here we see a couple of space pirates laying a space bomb on a space beacon, a sort of small space station along the space lanes

Penthouse - October 1978 - Lust in Space (1978)

We're looking at a Penthouse photo shoot from 1978, when everyone was jumping on the sci-fi/Star Wars bandwagon.  The name of the feature is Lust in Space.  The photo are by Earl Miller and they happen to feature the  Men into Space helmet.
 This gentleman below appears to be adrift when...
 ...he stumbles over this very attractive alien lady and her twin.  And then stuff happens!
...which I'm not going to talk about here.
....or show you either.

All of theses images and many more are from the Blog; The Seduction of Venus, which is definitely for grown ups only and is very good if you like that sort of thing*

Anyway to see more, so much more, go to:

Gemini 7 (1965)

The Gemini 7 crew leaves the suiting trailer during the prelaunch countdown. That's astronauts James A. Lovell Jr. at the front who was the pilot, and Frank Borman behind him who was the command pilot. The suit they wore were designed to be more comfortable during the 14-day mission and give the astronauts greater mobility than on previous Gemini missions.
And after two weeks they appear to be very happy to be back


Davis Meltzer

We've looked at Davis Meltzer before and we found him to be rather good.  Here's another one that's just too fine to have to wait for me to put another Gallery together.  Enjoy it now
