Our friend Walter alerted me to these slides taken when Cheryl played Samantha Pudding on the soap, “Bright Promise.” These are the only pictures to date found from the soap. Gotta love eBay!

Rare photos of Marshall Thompson from a sci-fi thriller

I received a delightful email from Michael, a Daktari fan in England who has a connection with Marshall Thompson. He writes,

“Hello from London England

As 60’s child I was (like millions of others) a huge fan of Daktari… what I didn’t know then but discovered recently whilst researching my grandfather’s biography was that he starred alongside Marshall Thompson in the Sci-Fi thriller “First Man Into Space” – Carl Heinz Jaffé was Dr. Paul Von Essen.

Here is a rare film PR still from my private collection:

(it looks similar to others widely available; many of which I have too; but THIS one you won’t find; notice please the authentic studio picture code in the bottom RH corner). The chap in the white lab coat is Jaffé/Von Essen…”

And here is a second still from Michael:

You, the fans, keep this blog (and Daktari) alive and well!
