    Description

    William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy Candid Shots by Irv Steinberg. As TV's Start Trek made its impact on pop culture in the mid-1960s, celebrity photographer Irv Steinberg set his sights on William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy as they made personal appearances. This lot includes three proof sheets; the first shows Shatner guesting on The Merv Griffin Show, sitting with fellow guests David Susskind and "Viva" (Andy Warhol "underground" actress), in makeup and singing onstage; the second and third sheet shows Nimoy, often brightly smiling as he signs autographs and presumably sharing this gig with The Association (whose song "Wendy" was a big hit about this time, and who are also pictured on the proofs). Fun to see the two young actors trying to ballyhoo a TV fame that neither probably imagined would become sci-fi folklore. Very Good to Excellent condition.
