Photo of the Day

No, you're not seeing things. That's Ed Fury in the background in the STAR TREK episode "The Omega Glory" with William Shatner as Kirk, of course.

This was shot AFTER Ed left Italy for good, after starring in a dozen or so Sword & Sandal films, including THE MIGHTY URSUS and COLOSSUS AND THE AMAZON QUEEN only to end up as an extra standing in the background for an episode of a TV series. Ed was the star of many films and yet it meant nothing in Hollywood. This appearance is not listed at Ed' IMDb's profile. Also, having seen everything Ed made, from WILD WOMEN OF WONGO to his last PEPLUM, I've never seen him so out of shape. I find this sad.

I never noticed him before. He still has some of his fitness evident, but he looks really sad in that picture; perhaps his mother had died by this time, as she was his agent, I'm told.
