stuff is from the kooky : Mahatma

than I shall ever be. Click

he wrote this history of Mister Klemperer, someone wrote him about Klink.
Mahatma said "Yeah, I got one E-mail from a guy who's mom had dated
Werner Klemperer for a few years in WWII, when they were both USO entertainers.
Werner had recently died, and his mom had revealed their affair to him.
He was quite shocked, and was trying to find out anything he could about
Werner, sort of as a present to his mom, to see if he ever thought about
her, talked about her, whatever, in the 60 years since. He assumed from
my article on your page that I knew more about him than I did. We talked
a couple times, and he disappeared."
by reading that paragraph, its' like YOU have slept with Klink. I'm impressed!
"Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" (1964-1968, 110 episodes, 31 in B&W)
was based on the very sucessful 1961 movie of the same name. It was set
ten years in the (then) future of 1974, primarily aboard the USRN* Seaview,

The first season
(64/65) seems to mostly chronicle 1974/75, while the later seasons take
place anywhere from '75 to 1980, in no particular chronological order.

star of the show was Richard Basehart's Admiral Harriman Nelson, a 50-ish
retired 4-star admiral ** who was the world's foremost marine biologist,
a nuclear engineer, computer genius, seasoned combat vetteran, and (Apparently)
an officer with some kind of history in covert ops.

first season frequently brought the Seaview into conflict with an ill-defined
international terrorist organization bent on mayhem and the eventual promise
of world control. Eh. It's a 60s thing. Kinda' like "Spectre" in the bond
flicks. I've named them "The League of Bald Men" because most of 'em
seem to be so, and because no better name was ever given onscreen. Their
leader was a man named "Frederich Kregar", played by WERNER KLEMPERER.
The first shows
up in the Pilot episode, "Eleven Days to Zero", where the Seaview has
11 days to stop a plot by "An organization we all know all-too-well" as
nelson says. There's 2 versions of this episode, one with a lot of WK
footage and voiceover stuff, the other with little WK footage, and some
voiceover stuff. The Reason? the original Frederich Kregar, John Zaremba,
got sick during filming, and had to be replaced, and WK stepped into the
roll. Since it was only a pilot episode, they made no effort to fix the
continuity. Once the series had been picked up by the network, they went
back and re-shot most of the Kregar scenes with WK. Airdate 9/16/64,

Directed by Felix "I'm not a cat, dammit" Feist. Cregar and the League

WK is only present in a suprisingly eerie voiceover while Craine is being
brainwashed. He's not credited, but it's unquestionably him.

Woodfield, directed by Felix "That guy, there" Feist. Nelson and Crane
end up on an island where the Legue and Cregar are experimenting with
violently halucinogenic drugs (you get violent, AND you halucinate!) and
spend most of the hour trying to kill each other. then they figure out
what's going on and go after Cregar. Cregar escapes, but is never seen
between 64 and 65, WK got HH, and so he and the League were simply disbanded,

So what other
60s Tv do you like?
States Research, Nuclear, as it was designated in seasons 2-4. In Season
1 it was designated "USOS" for "United States Oceanographic Survey". Given
the major set, personell, and designation changes between seasons 1 and
2, some people have speculated that season 1 was covert, and no one outside
of the government and the navy knew the Seaview existed, and the second
season was after the sub had been admitted to exist. this is, of course,
conjectural, however, and I'm deliberately wasting your time with it.
**- it could
happen. Hell, Elmo Zumwalt Jr. made 5 stars by the time he was 49 years
old! (Head of the US navy during Vietnam). It could happen. It's not bloody

I knew it had
to happen somehow. I'm reading the Sacramento Bee today, and saw an article
about Susan McDougal and her legal woes. As you may know, she's on trial
for bilking conductor Zubin Mehta and his wife out of $150,000 while she
was working for them. Buried near the end of the story was a mention
that one Werner Kemperer covered some of their debts for them after they
were screwed by McDougal.
There it is..
all plain as day. Bill Clinton/Whitewater/McDougal/ Kemperer/Bob Crane!
It's eerie! I think some intrepid soul (that would be you) should look
into HOW deeply Clinton is implicated in the Crane slaying. I mean, Vince
Foster; dead under questionable circumstances... Bob Crane; dead... questionable
circumstances. Maybe Lewinsky and the ambassador who died in a "plane
crash" are involved as well. I guess we all knew that a public figure
of Bob Crane's stature couldn't have died in the sordid manner the "media"
described... obviously a ploy to discredit this great American when he
was no longer able to defend himself.
I just Thought
You Should Know.
