William Powell as Philo Vance Chats with William Powell as Nick Charles

There was a Sherlock Holmes movie marathon on last night, and I set my DVD-r to record it while I went to bed. Imagine my delight today when, as I watched the movies, I came across this.... I don't know if it's technically a trailer or a short or what.... for one of my favorite movies, The Thin Man, starring one of my favorite actors, William Powell.

Lois Nettleton in Bracken's World: The Nude Scene

Below are 7 clips featuring Steve Ihnat and Lois Nettleton in Bracken's World: The Nude Scene. There are no nude scenes in any of the clips, I hasten to add!

I get quite a few hits on the Bracken's World page of my Steve Ihnat website tribute, from people searching specifically for Lois Nettleton. Indeed, I enjoyed her in her many performances, meself. Her most popular episodes are from the Twilight Zone, and the Golden Girls (in her early 60s but looking 40!).

Anyway, she appeared in an episode of Bracken's World with Steve Ihnat, called The Nude Scene. She plays a married actress who worries about how such a role will impact her two little children - a boy and a girl, and her husband. Meantime, Steve Ihnat plays an actor a leetle bit past his prime, who is also worried about playing a nude scene. (And just a year later, Lois would work with Steve again, except he'd be directing her from behind the camera in the movie The Honkers, which starred James Coburn. One wonders if the movie might have been more successful with a more accessible name, like Rodeo Cowboy or something! But I digress.)

This was 1970, when the nudity of women in American films wasn't as ubiquitous as it is today. (Although, interestingly, in the trailer for Madigan, which starred Richard Widmark and had Steve Ihnat as the villain, a woman's breasts are seen, briefly. And this was in the trailer! I dont' think they could do that today, although they do show a lot of disgusting things in trailers...usually from horror films. I don't think horror film trailers should be shown before PG-rated movies!)

Robert Goulet in the Blue Light

In this episode, Field of Dishonor, Steve Ihnat guest-stars as a German general who has grown disenchanted with the Nazis and wishes to flee to England. (In the same series, James Frawley, who played Robert Renaldo in The Outer Limts two-parter The Inheriotrs, plays a Gestapo officer).

THe series ran for only 17 episodes.

Below are the scenes with Steve Ihnat

My recorder can't grab the first few seconds of this scene, in whch Steve Ihnat as Gerhart knocks Robert Goulet over the little fence thingie. But it is soooo annoying. Goulet is on the ground, giving Steve plenty of time to grab up his gun. But no. He runs! This also despite the fact that, later on in the scene, it is revealed that he also has a knife! The fight scene at the very end is very shadowy....at this point Ihnat has a bad back and I don't think he does his own stunts anymore, which may be why things are arranged so that the fight takes place in shadow (thus allowing for a stuntman).

The Scarlet Pimpernel in Japanese - who knew?

Above is a link to Amazon to purchase the 1991 Concept Cast of the Scarlet Pimpernel Musical.

Below, a scene from an all-female Japanese troop of actors performing The Scarlet Pimpernel musical, in Japanese. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takarazuka_Revue

Here is "Into the Fire"

(I've never seen the musical version, but I've got the "concept CD" that has Peebo Bryson, Chuck Wagner, and Linda Eder.)

The BEST Scarlet Pimpernel - Anthony Andrews, Jane Seymour, and Ian McKellen:

And to hear Linda Eder perform The Man of La Mancha:

Here Come The Brides: Absalom

The first season of Here Comes the Brides has been released on DVD, the second season has not. Thanks to a kind friend, I have a copy of "Absalom", from the second season, which starred Mitch Vogel as an ostensibly deaf/mute boy, whose insane father "leaves him" to Jason Bolt. Steve Ihnat plays the boy's uncle, who blames the boy for driving his brother insane.

Below are most of Steve's appearances in the episode. (There are two very brief scenes of a shaggy haired and bearded Steve playing Oliver Tray's insane brother, but they'e too brief to bother with).

The Bolt brothers enter their home to find lawyer Oliver Tray waiting for them:

Jeremy Bolt (Bobby Sherman) tries to persuade Oliver Tray that Absalom is intelligent and can be taught sign language.

Jason Bolt tries to plea Absalom's case, but Oliver Tray is adamant. Absalom must go into an asyslum.

Steve Ihnat in Felony Squad

Steve Ihnat plays Vic Durant. He had been the protege of Mr. Majeski, a hood who has fled the country, but has now returned to testify against Durant who has taken over his businesses.

Howard Duff as Sgy Sam Stone and Dennis Cole as Detective Jimm Briggs ask him questions. (Cole doesn't say anything in this scene.)

Below is the scene where Vic Durant, who has a gun, does not wait at the front of the greenhouse to pick off the two men hunting him as they come through the doors. No, he runs to the back of the greenhouse and allows them to get him in a pincer movement. Steve/Cic's expression as he realizes he's about to die is very affecting... then there's fights between the detectives and the villains, then Dennis Cole and Howard Duff get a brief moment of bandinage, and fade out...

Dennis Cole in Felony Squad

Dennis Cole passed away today. The only TV show of his of which I have a copy is The Felony Squad: "Target" which guest-starred Steve Ihnat. Unfortunately the quality of my source copy isn't that great, but thought I'd share som screencaps from it.

Only a few today, I'll upload the rest tomorrow.

Cole plays second lead to Howard Duff (at one point married to Ida Lupino, and radio's Sam Spade). Ihnat plays Vic Durant, a mobster who grows orchids, and who has taken over the business of Mr. Majeski, a mobster who fled to Cuba but who has now returned to the States to testify against Durant. In the beginning, someone tries to kill him, but no one is injured. The woman, his wife, is played by Angelique Pettyjohn, whom Star Trek fans may remember as the silver-bikini clad fighter in Gamesters of Triskelion.

Uploading a video is so much quicker!

Darren McGavin's Mike Hammer, and other stuff

Steve Ihnat fans are in for a treat, as a few of his scenes from a variety of TV shows have been uploaded to YouTube.

I've been a fan of Darren McGavin since seeing him in Kolchak, Nightstalker, over 30 years ago. He was the original Mike Hammer.

Here's a scene from Mike Hammer in which a very young Steve Ihnat, in one of his very first roles, tries to intimidate Hammer.

Then there's the case of Dr. Kildare, starring Richard Chamberlain. Another series very popular at one time, that is not out on commercial DVD.

Here's two scenes that feature Steve:

What's Going on With the Inheritors?

I have a counter on my Steve Ihnat Tribute Site (Brief Candle) which not only tells me that someone has visited, but also where they are from, what kind of browser they use, and how they found the site.

99% of my visitors find the site from the link on Steve's wikipedia page, but today, I've gotten three times as many visitors as normal...and they all come to the site after having done a search on The Outer Limits The Inheritors.

And being a curious soul, I wonder why. I checked the IMDB and the episode isn't being shown anywhere (which is a pity. Much as I love the Twilight Zone marathons on the SciFi channel, I wish they'd show The Outer Limits once in a while!) but it's too much of a coincidence to think of dozens of people throughout the US just choosing today to look up The Inheritors. Perhaps it's being screened on some country-wide online film class, or something.

Anyway, in one way it's a pity. I had interviewd Steve's widow, Sally Ihnat-Marshall, a couple of weeks ago, and haven't had time to upload it yet. But one of the things she told me was that Steve had ad-libbed the entire final speech he makes to Ballard, when Ballard (Robert Duvall) is trying to get the mind-controlled men to fight back and release the children that they are taking away in the space ship. And it's that speech that many fans of this episode say has them sitting there with tears on their faces...

That would have been a nice little paragraph to share on my website's Inheritor's page, but I just haven't done it yet!

Best performance of Julius Caesar EVER

Okay, I exaggerate a little bit. But theater majors will get a kick out of this.

Morecambe & Wise and Peter Cushing

Morecambe & Wise were the most popular comedy duo in England for some time. Peter Cushing, star of many a Hammer film, including The Hound of the Baskervilles as Sherlock Holmes, and of course Grand Moff Tarkin from Star Wars.

In 1969, Peter Cushing guest-starred on the show, in a sketch about King Arthur. Every year for the next 10 or so years, he would show up periodically on the show, asking for his money.

His first appearance, July 1969:

More reapperances, trying to get paid:

2nd appearance in the year, Sept 1969:

Who Goes There?

I've written a few pieces of fan ficton regarding the "Whom Gods Destroy" episode of Star Trek, which of course starred one of my favorite actors, Steve Ihnat.

They are downloadable as free PDFs here: http://volcanoseven.com/BriefCandle/StarTrek/Garthfanfiction.html

There's a prologue to the episode, called "The Madness of Garth of Izar" which attempts to explain why Garth's madness took the form it took, and then there's Who Goes There? which is a complete re-envisioning of the episode, as it should have been!

To explain some of the in-jokes:

1. The title refers to the John Campbell sci-fi story, Who Goes There?, which in turn was the basis of The Thing From Another World, the great 1950s movie, and The Thing, a 1990s remake with Kurt Russell. In the short story, the alien is able to appear as anybody he wants (or can possess anyone he wants, I forget now, as it has been a long time I'since I've read it, I confess.)

2. All of the male characters - who are not actual Star Trek characters - possess names of characters that Steve Ihnat played during his career. I'd originally intended for Who Goes There? to be much longer, and to take place entirely with the cast of the Enterprise, but for various reasons I changed my mind, so only half of Steve's character names are used...

3. Gus Keller, Garth's ultimate persona, is of course from Mannix: End Game. I echo a few of Gus's lines in the story...as well as a couple of Lt. Minns' lines...

So, I hope you enjoy.

Captain Kirk climbs a mountain

This must have been a TV doc on William Shatner and rock climbing... from 20 years or so ago... he looks very young and fit.

The original poster doesn't explain where it's from, but it's been edited, as you can see.

Still fun to watch.

Steve Ihnat in The Young Rebels

You've just got to laugh. Two days or so after I complete The Ultimate Steve Ihnat TV and Movie appearance video, I find screencaps of Steve in The Young Rebels. Playing the villain, of course.

Irritatingly, the person who has these episodes on VHS or DVD or whatever, doesn't appear to want to make them available to fans...(at least, he/she has posted a message on their fan site saying, no, I don't have any videos...well, where'd the screencaps come from, then???

Martin Landau as Rollin Hand

I loved Martin Landau on Mission: Impossible, especially with his wife Barbara Bain as Cinnamon Carter... (MI was never quite the same when they left...)

Here's a tribute (done by someone else!) of Landau as Rollin Hand:

The Ultimate Ihnat Video Tribute

This video features a screencap of every TV ep and movie that Steve Ihnat ever appeared in (where the screencaps were available. Unfortunately some of his stuff is not released on either VHS or DVD.)

There's music to this video - Apres Midi and Forever Autumn by Justin Hayward. If you don't hear the soundtrack please let me know!

Steve Ihnat's Epic Fights and Confrontation Scenes

Set to the music of Carmina Burana's O Fortuna:

If you'll forgive a rant...the first version of the above video had the action timed precisely to the music. Precisely. Chanting for the confrontation scenes, music for the fights. And it was soooo good. But for reasons which I now know - too late to do me any good - I couldn't convert that version to a movie file.

So, there's this version, and the timing of the music really falls down at the end of the video, so much so that the "effect" I was going for throughout will be pretty much lost.

Having said that...it's still fun to see Steve mix it up with his fellow actors!

1. Mannix, Endgame. Steve as Gus Keller has placed a bomb in Joe's walkie talkie. Unfortunately for Gus, Joe realizes this and gets rid of it...in the one place Gus hadn't expected.

2. Andy Warshaw in Hour of the Gun, opposite James Garner as Wyatt Earp. Steve acts as lookout when Earp's brother is killed, so Earp guns him down.

3. In The Chase, Steve has the role of Archie, a guy who, along with Richard Bradford, had beaten up Marlon Brando earlier in the film. In this scene, Brando gets his own back.

4. In Daniel Boone, Steve as Sheriff Tyler has come to take Rebecca Boone into custody, in order to force her husband Daniel to do what his employer bids. Rebecca has a gun, but Steve doesn't believe she'll have the guts to shoot him. She does.

5. Another little bit of Mannix, Endgame, with Joe and Gus fighting.

6. Star Trek. Steve plays the insane Garth of Izar. William Shatner as Captain Kirk tries to remind him of who he used to be. He seems to be getting through, but then Garth's insanity reasserts itself.

7. 77 Sunset Strip. Steve is a flunky who gets whammed in the head with a frying pan by actress Virginian Gregg. He has a fight at the end with Efrem Zimbalisst.

8. Honey West. Anne Francis as Honey West, John Ericson as Sam Bolt.

Anthony Zerbe in Kung Fu

When I was growing up, in the late 1960s and through the 70s and early 80s, the Western was king. Bonanza, Gunsmoke, The Virginian, etc. I never cared for Westerns, so only watched them when one of my favorite actors was guest-starring, as for example Steve Ihnat or Anthony Zerbe.

The exception to the rule was Kung Fu. I was never a big David Carradine fan, but I liked the kung fu fights!

One of my favorite episodes was in the third season, The Predators, starring Cal Bellini as Apache Hoskay, and Anthony Zerbe as Rafe, a scalp-hunter, and also a man who knows that Kwai-Chang did not kill a sheriff in a certain town. Caine tries to bring Rafe back to the town to testify to who really killed the sheriff, while his men chase them, and the wounded Apache, Hoskay.

In the end, Rafe witnesses the humanity of Hoskay, and of Caine, and is changed for the better.

Warren Stevens in TZ's Dead Man Shoes

There's a bit of a mini-Twilight Zone marathon going on at the Sci Fi channel (that was), and an episode that just ended is Dead Man's Shoes, which starred Warren Stevens.

A gangster has been killed by his partner, and his body dumped in an alley. A bum, played by Warren Stevens, comes across the body and makes off with his "Size 9, black and grey loafers, made in the old country."

Once the timid and meek bum puts on the shoes, he becomes possessed by the gangster, and his demeanor changes completely. Then, a bit later on in the episode, when he takes the shoes off briefly and is de-possessed, his demeanor changes again.

That's what I like about this episode. We get a chance to see Warren Steven's acting ability, playing two disparate characters.

In searching the web for a photo of Stevens to illustrate this article, I came across the Lex Barker website. http://www.lex-barker.com/. (Barker and Stevens co-starred in three movies.)

Barker, who played Tarzan and who had a great body which he kept in shape, died of a heart attack at the age of 54. 54! Well, it's better than 37, but it just goes to show... doesn't matter how fit you are, if you've got a weak heart...

Sneak preview: Interview with Gary Clarke

Actor Gary Clarke, who co-starred on Mike Shayne and on The Virginian, was best friends with Steve Ihnat for many years.

Gary gave us an interview about Steve for Brief Candle. The first part of the interview is ready for viewing. (The second part is still being transcribed.)

However, lots of fun stuff here:


Includes brief clips of Steve dancing in Dragstrip Riot, and menacing Clarke and Jeanine Riley in Strike Me Deadly. There's also an amusing clip of Gary Clarke trying to figure out a puzzle with three glasses, in the opening of Steve's first Virginian episode, "The Fatal Journey."

(Apologies for the unsynched audio in the clip. But you still get the gist.)

The Last of the Original I Dream of Jeannie?

I visited Steve Ihnat's IMDB webpage today, to check out the TV schedule for him that they have. (As for every actor.) His Gunsmoke episode, Exodus 21:22 will be airing on Friday, October 2, 2009, by the way.

Anyway, I noticed that of the 7 videos you used to be able to watch there, the I Dream of Jeannie episode was missing. (My Master the Rainmaker, in which Steve plays the meek and shy Sgt Ben Roberts, opposite Barbara Eden as Jeannie and Larry Hagman as Major Anthony Nelson.) So I went to the IMDB page for I Dream of Jeannie. You used to be able to watch all of those episodes...but now they are all gone.

And I'm wondering...they're remaking I Dream of Jeannie as a movie to be released in 2010, so did the producers decide to forbid the free viewing of all old episodes of the TV show, prepatory to releasing them on DVD or something?

In that regard, it's interesting, as you can watch every episode of Star Trek from the IMDB site (although the original versions, not the remastered, special effects added ones.) [And what's sad about that is, in the first season theme music, a vocalist named Loulie Jean Norman sang the melody line (not words, just the melody), but the episodes on DVD today don't have her vocal for some reason!Perhaps whoever owns the rights to the TV shows doesn't want to pay Norman's heirs the copyright due her each time that theme music plays, which is a damn shame.

However, you can hear it at YouTube:

Ayn Rand on YouTube

I have been a fan of Ayn Rand's for decades. While I don't believe in all of her philosophy of Objectivism, I do believe in a great deal of it. Which is why I was delighted to hear that Steve Ihnat was apparently an Objectivist too...or at least, a favorite of Ayn Rand's. According to Sally Ihnat-Marshall, Steve's widow, Ayn Rand wanted Steve to direct a movie version of Atlas Shrugged.

(I interviewed Sally just a couple of days ago, and as soon as its transcribed I'll upload it to Brief Candle, my tribute to Steve Ihnat.

I just checked YouTube, and there are a lot of videos there featuring Rand.

Here's one, where she was interviewed by Mike Wallace in 1959. An interview of her with Phil Donahue is also there, and more.

Clips from Mannix Endgame and Star Trek Whom Gods Destroy

I now have the technology to record film clips! Yay. Starting with Steve Ihnat, of course, but I'll shortly segue into other actors and other favorite scenes.

Alas, one thing my loyal readers won't see, at least any time soon, is my Steve Ihnat: Epic Fights and Confrontation Scenes. It's there, on my computer, a mixture of video and frame-by-frame clips, of some of Steve Ihnat's fights and confrontation scenes. I ha to do some of it frame-by-frame, because I wanted to coordinate the action precisely with the music I'd chosen, which was an extended version of O Fortuna (the music from Excalibur.)

And it's great. The music is synched beautifully...but for some reason my software won't save the file as a movie! I threw a couple of tantrums like Garth/Kirk in Whom Gods Destroy, but it did no good. I suspect it's because I've got too much frame-by-frame stuff, it does seem to give Windows Movie Maker fits to have too much of it.

So, I've given up on that for now and will just work with clips. Which will probably be better, anyway, as newbies to star actors will get more out of actually being able to hear dialog, then just seeing the face but not being able to hear the voice.

Moon Over the Plain At YouTube

Someone wrote and sang an original song called Moon Over the Plain, and set it to various clips of Steve Ihnat, and other actors, such as Robert Duvall from The Outer Limits The Inheritors.

Guns and how to hold them

I've been watching a show called Numbers, which features Enrico Colosanto holding a gun on a federal agent. And he's got his arms extended as far out as they'll go, and he's holding the gun at the end of his arms. And if the guy he's holding hadn't been suffering from a gun wound, I'm sure he could have reached out and grabbed that gun away.

Whenever you watch cop shows these days...that's the way they always hold their guns. I suppose to be cool. (Although the "in" thing, the "cool" thing these days is to hold the gun sideways...I've always thought that looked pretty stupid and must play hell with aiming...) And every time I watch these guys going around corners with their arms stretched out and their hands pointing down, I'm thinking, anyone could be waiting around the corner to grab that gun right out of their hands...

Contrast that with the way Steve Ihnat was holding his gun on Mannix in Endgame. At all times he's holding the gun close to his body, so there's no way Mannix can reach out and grab it from him. (The only time Mannix does get the drop on Steve's character, it's because Steve lets him, as part of his diabolical plan to blow up Mannix and Art Malcolm.)

But fashions change... similarly, I remember way back 20 years ago, the "in" thing with sword fights was to have one of the two duelists grab up his sword by the pointy end and swing the guard at his opponent. Stupid, stupid! But some famous fight choreographer had done it, and for a while htere, any movie that had any kind of a fencing scene would do it too...

Here he's holding the gun straight out from his body...but Mannix is 20 yards away!

What to do when chased by 2 cold-hearted killers

Cornered, and about to die. (Click picture for larger version.)

Let us assume, for a minnit, that you are a cold-hearted killer, with a gun, and you're being chased by two cold-hearted killers, with guns.

And let us assume you run into a building, as for example a green house.

Here's what you do. You stop immediately, step to one side of the door, and hunker down on your knees so that anyone running in through the door - as for example your pursuers, will look around at eye level and not see you.

And then...you just shoot them. Bang for the lead guy, bang for his associate. From three feet away, you can't miss.

What you do not do is run to the other end of the building, and crouch down in the middle of the back hallway, so that your two pursuers can come at you in a pincer movement, trap you between them, and then shoot you down.

That's what happened to Steve Ihnat in the Felony Squad episode Target. Felony Squad ran from 1966 to 1969, and starred Howard Duff as Det. Sgt. Sam Stone and Dennis Cole as Det. Jim Briggs.

In Steve's episode, Target (Season 1, episode 24, aired Feb 20, 1967) Will Kuluva plays a mobster coming back to town to testify against the man (Steve as Vic Durant) who took over his operation. Harry Majeski's pretty young wife is played by Angelique Pettyjohn, whom Star Trek fans might recognize as the tall blonde fighter who takes on Captain Kirk in "Gamesters of Triskelion".

It's all a ploy, though. Instead of testifying against him, Majeski wants to kill Durant...and because Durant did not follow the excellent advice given at the top of this post, he succeeds.

Steve Ihnat and the Smirk

It's interesting to watch an actor in a series of shows and try to decide what "business" he does, that he does for that particular character, and what "business" he does because it's his own mannerisms. It's also fun to try to figure out what his real accent is, and what he puts on for any particular character.

I'll be sharing a few of Steve's mannerisms in days to come, but here is, for lack of a better word, "the smirk."

Click on photo to see larger version.

Left - Steve's normal smile. Middle, his smirk. Right, smirk as Keller in Mannix.

I'm actually not sure if it's a smirk, but he does something to his lips that makes it more than a smile!

Steve Ihnat Marathon

Thanks to a kind friend (and you know who you are ; ) ) I now have over thirty Steve Ihnat episodes that I'd never seen before, ranging from his early stuff in Highway Patrol (in which he looks very very young...well, he was young!) to later, 1970s stuff.

And it's been a lot of fun to watch them over the course of a few days.

Steve does an excellent job in Mannix: "End Game" as Gus Keller. Branded as a stoolie in a Korean POW camp 14 years ago, the rest of his squad, led by Mannix, breaks out and leaves him behind. If that isn't bad enough, when he's liberated from Chang Jou, he's then sent to Leavenworth for life. However, he's released - apparently for good behavior - and goes gunning after the men who left him behind, until finally only Joe and Art Malcom (Joe's cop friend) are left. Gus kidnaps Art and hides him in an abandoned building which he's got booby-trapped full of explosives. Joe goes in to try to rescue Art....but Keller has had 14 years to plot out his revenge...

In Blue Light, Steve plays a German officer who has disowned the Nazis and wants to escape to the West. His German accent is spot on here. (I can't claim to be an expert on accents, but having lived in Germany for three months, I know a "real" German accent when I hear one.)

Indeed, it's always fun to listen to Steve and his accents, from generic southern to Alabaman to German to generic Eastern bloc foreigner (during his Mission Impossible stints)

Mannix is a great TV series, pick 'em up to Steve's episodes, and stick around to watch the rest of these great episodes.

(Steve in Huntdown) episode 7

(Steve in Endgame) episode 19

Steve doesn't appear again until Season 5 of Mannix (1972), which has yet to be released, however, go ahead and pick up Season 3, too:
