BCTA Photo negatives

Hey everyone!

As you may recall, Tatia told us about several BCTA photo negatives from the SFX Archive being available on eBay back in May. You can read the post here:http://www.network54.com/Forum/172251/t ... 7t+Have+To+....
I bought the negatives and promised I would follow up. As with the previous set I purchased, I had them developed into 8 x 10s. This time I also had them put on a CD so that made posting them up easier.

I've posted them all at TheConsummateCulp site.
http://theconsummateculp.com/2012/06/wh ... ta-photos/
Specifically, the seven that werent shown in the auction are these....

Thanks for all the hard work, Lisa! Much appreciated by me and no doubt others on the list!

Thank you so much, Lisa ... yes, I am enjoying!!

I'm just back from a short photo shoot, and am trying to catch-up with everything, including saying thank you
properly for sharing your goodies. I know that you are partial to candid shots and not just screen caps.

I, on the other hand, am not so discriminating and will take Bob anyway I can get him ...

even on cigarette lighters

on marbles

on cereal boxes

on pillows (made by Rachel Culp)

and totes

(available athttp://www.etsy.com/shop/mydeepbluec/)

on camera guns

and eating utensils

and even on coffee ads (where I can use my Kelly spoon) ....

Whew!! BUT .... I digress.

This is a thank you to Lisa and Amaryllis and B-L for all that they do
(and for everyone else to enjoy, also. )

It is the
Culp Collection of Candids... and there are a whole bunch of them.

They include photos of Robert with all sorts of celebs, at entertainment events,
sporting events, and event events. Some I may have posted before, lots I haven't.
They are from everywhere - and in no particular order. I'll add any additional
information I may have. (I thought of trying to turn this into a Quiz somehow,
but had no idea how ... ) I'll post them in several parts.

So breakout the popcorn and enjoy !!

... with Ernest Borgnine and Carol Connors having a drink

with Jerry Orbach at NBC's 75th Anniversary party

with David Hyde Pierce at NBC's 75th Anniversary party

with Sandy Koufax, Elke Sommers, and Andy Williams
at the 24th Golden Globe Awards in 1967

and another one with Sandy Koufax and Elke Sommers

and with France Nuyen and Andy Williams, at the same event, with the
guys in suits, not tuxedos - the event was held at the famed Cocoanut Grove

and another one

with Leslie Nielsen at the "So the World May Hear" Gala
for the Starkey Hearing Foundation - 2004

... that's the same guy he helped out when he was smoking,
drinking Dr. Hartwood on DR. KILDARE. I'm sure Leslie is still grateful.

More to follow ...

Tatia, that was a wonderful collection of pics to browse through! Thank you for putting those together, that was fun!

And hey, I'll take Bob in whatever format too.

Wow, what a staggering collection! Thanks, Tatia. I especially like him in those skin-tight jeans in the Turk 182 photo. Yummers.

Re: BCTA Photo negatives

In Bob's I Spy DVD commentary he mentions about getting a tan to avoid going to makeup. This caused a pre-cancer on his temple. As I look at some of these pictures above, I think I can see what he's on about. The close-ups give a very clear view.

I agree, these are all very fun! I have to admit I'm partial to the NBC 75th party w/David Hyde Pierce, just because DHP looks so thrilled and happy to be talking to RC ... and also apparently all the 'stars' were wearing little lapel pins denoting their contribution? RC's looks like a tiny version of Kelly's backhand!

thanks Tatia!
