RIP John D.F. Black


John D.F. Black, perhaps best remembered as a writer, screenwriter, story editor, executive story consultant and associate producer on “Star Trek: The Original Series” during its first season, died peacefully of natural causes at the Motion Picture Hospital in Woodland Hills, California on Nov. 29. He was 85.

MSTies will know his work from early in his career when, using the pen name Geoffrey Dennis, he wrote the screenplay for the movie in episode 320- THE UNEARTHLY.

There’s a very nice and complete remembrance of him here.

Thanks to Tim for the heads up.

Weekend Discussion Thread: Finding Something Good

Alert reader Jay suggests:

Last week we discussed movies so bad that they were a waste of film stock. Aesop is said to have said “No kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” Perhaps we could try finding something good in these worst movies, no matter how small?
I nominate The Master’s cape in MANOS, THE HANDS OF FATE. It was cool.

I’ll go with Batwoman’s necklace. Very tasteful.

Your pick?
