A Cultural History
I`ve just realised you dont have a pic of sean connery as 007 in his spacesuit from You only live twice.https://www.thejamesbonddossier.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/cover-450x637.jpghttps://assets.catawiki.nl/assets/2018/1/14/0/5/8/058065ca-f921-11e7-9a4a-1ffdc39dadab.jpghttps://assets.catawiki.nl/assets/2018/1/13/f/a/6/fa601b5c-d0e3-4992-9ef2-65c51019c614.jpghttps://assets.catawiki.nl/assets/2017/9/18/0/1/8/0181b378-9c85-11e7-9383-a21a6a576e7c.jpg
I was finally able to track down a pic of the spacesuits from the 1987 tv movie version of The Man Who Fell To Earth,interestingly the film stars 2 star trek actors,will wheaton and robert picardo.The films plot is rather like the 70s one except that this alien becomes a yuppie thanks to reaganomics and trickle down theory,also shoulder pads...it is a late 80s movie.The suits are your usual silver bake-o-foil with a crash helmet affair,but since the 70s original didnt have any spacesuits to speak of,this is all thats on offer.https://coolcatdaddy.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/the-man-who-fell-to-earth.jpghttps://i.digiguide.tv/up/1302/620831-TheManWh-13614585347.35.jpg
think I've got these In the archive, probably should have posted them by now
I found a weird one for ya. This is a sketch from the old SCTV program (one of my favorite shows when I was a kid...I was a weird kid). It's about NASA mounting a production of "Murder in the Cathedral" on Broadway. Like many of their sketches it's an odd concept and more consistently amusing than laugh-out-loud funny, but that was their forte. The knock-off NASA suits aren't bad and I'm sure with the miniscule budget this show had they must have gotten them elsewhere. Perhaps you've seen them before!https://youtu.be/C0Kv6tVqWfE
Thats a new one,I`ve never seen those before.Not to mention that they certainly look a bit better than the usual crash helmet one has come to expect from this sort of very low budget/do-it-yourself type props.
Cheers Brad, fantastic find and all very new to me
