Behind the Scenes: Lost In Space (1965)

I’m a huge fan of the classic Sci-Fi TV series Lost in Space that ran on CBS back in 1965 until 1968. It’s got a great cast with the likes of Guy Williams, June Lockhart, Marta Kristen, Mark Goddard, Angela Cartwright, but especially Bill Mumy and Jonathan Harris.

Thanks to Quint over at Ain’t It Cool News for this amazing behind the scenes photo of Bill Mumy getting a special make-up makeover.

From Quint: “From the original ‘60s TV series LOST IN SPACE comes this series of make-up photos as Frank Griffin helps apply the prosthetics created and designed by the legendary John Chambers to turn young Bill Mumy into Jonathan Harris’ Dr. Smith.

So, have pleasant nightmares looking at this creepy s#!&!

Thanks to William Forsche and Michael Harper for sending this one along.”
