That Time Leonard Nimoy Played A Psychic Racecar Driver





BAFFLED! Looks Amazing & Terrible, All In One.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8By-fCGpiFM

In this 1973 TV movie pilot for an ongoing occult-paranormal detective series, race car driver Tom Kovack (Lenoard Nimoy) gains psychic powers in the wake of a crash. He partners with paranormal researcher Michele Brent (Susan Hampshire), who believes his visions of the future are true.

The supernatural theme is awesome, but the acting? Terrible! Still, it's so earnest. Seeing Nimoy try to work his game with lines like, "You're a great lookin' chick, so maybe we'll see each other" is mortifying fun.

The rest is a montage of every '70s trope ever-—the slow-motion running, the overuse of zooms, sawing at the wheel of obviously stationary cars, turtlenecks, collars you could hang-glide with... it's all here:

Such a pity the world never got to see this on a weekly basis, eh?

Don't think about all those things you fear. Just be glad to be here.

I love it... "You're a pretty good looking chick, so maybe we should go out sometime." LOL. Great find, WM!

I just posted but it disappeared. Maybe there was more to that story. The teaser for the next episode was well done. I wonder what was the behind the happenings that resulted in no weekly shows?

Reminded me a bit of that Kolchak The Night Stalker.
