Sorry About That, Chief: Revisiting the Secret World of 'Get Smart'

The Classic TV series Get Smart introduced the world to Don Adams as Maxwell Smart, secret agent 86, and Barbara Feldon as Agent 99, both working for the secret government agency Control and taking on the world-threatening Kaos. The show itself is a full-blown parody of the spymania boom created by the James Bond films throughout the 1960s, though what's interesting is that a spoof usually comes at the end of a creative cycle, many of them signaling a last gasp of sorts from whatever subject is being parodied. Get Smart, on the other hand, came three years into the boom. When the show premiered in the fall of 1965, there had only been three 007 movies, with things really exploding at the end of that year with the release of the fourth, Thunderball. Donna McChrohan Rosenthal, author of the non-fiction exploration of the show The Life and Times of Maxwell Smart, explains in an exclusive interview,

Actress Yvonne Craig, who starred in the role of Barbara Gordon/Batgirl in the 1960s "Batman" TV series, passed away in her home on Monday night at the age of 78 due to breast cancer.

In the original "Star Trek" series, Craig played the role of the green-skinned Orion slave girl Marta who was out to kill Captain Kirk in the episode "Whom Gods Destroy". It's a performance that defined that entire race in "Star Trek" for decades to come and is still one of the more enduring images from the original show.

In 1977, Kiel made his first appearance as Jaws alongside Roger Moore in The Spy Who Loved Me, and became one of a handful of Bond villains to return for a subsequent movie, reprising the role for 1979’s Moonraker, as well as the 2004 video game James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing.

Iconic Bond Adversary Richard Kiel Dies At 74

Actor Richard Kiel has passed away in a California hospital at the age of 74. Born in Detroit, this distinctive, towering presence was known for his appearances in films such as notorious B Movie Eegah and TV show The Wild Wild West. He was also the original choice for The Incredible Hulk series before producers decided he had the wrong build (Kiel didn’t mind as he found the contact lenses and make up for The Hulk difficult to deal with).

However it was his turn as a monster in another franchise that brought him to wider attention, when he took the role of Jaws in The Spy Who Loved Me in 1977. With his steel teeth he was the perfect villain for the more flamboyant Bond era ushered in by Roger Moore. The scene where he killed Nadim Sawalha at the pyramids haunted many a childhood.

R.I.P. Actor Richard Kiel — James Bond Villain & ‘Twilight Zone’ Kanamit
The towering actor who played the mercenary assassin Jaws in a pair of Roger Moore-era 007 movies and the enigmatic alien in one of the most famous episodes of The Twilight Zone died today.

He appeared in the 1962 sci-fi feature The Phantom Planet before landing the chilling Twilight Zone role. In “To Serve Man,” he played a representative of an advanced, giant alien race called the Kanamits, who alight on Earth amid what seems to be peace and good will.
