Snyder chats with some Star Trek cast members - VIDEOS
Like any normal person living in the 21st century, the first thing I did upon hearing about Tom Snyder's death was to try and find some of his old interviews on YouTube. I'm too young to have watched The Tomorrow Show, but I did watch Snyder on The Late Late Show during my college years.
As I assumed, my YouTube search resulted in a lot of great clips, but the most interesting, to me anyway, is the interview Snyder conducted with James Doohan, Deforest Kelley, Walter Koenig, Harlan Ellison and Al Shuster. The men are talking about the still-in-development Star Trek motion picture. I've placed the interview, in five parts, below.
I'll admit I never jumped on the Star Trek bandwagon, but Snyder could be interviewing a topsoil expert and I'd still watch it and find it fascinating. The man always seemed genuinely enthusiastic about his interviewees, and that enthusiasm was always contagious. Also, anytime writer Harlan Ellison is interviewed, I'm there. I've never read any of his books, but damn is he fun to watch.
Also, everyone is smoking, which is pretty cool.
