May 31-June 2, 2011...Roy was a guest
Memphis Film Festival and here he is with
Barbara Luna, who you may remember co-starred with Roy in the Invaders episode
called "The Storm" from 1967 in which David Vincent was kept in a drugged state
by an alien posing as a housekeeper of Joseph Campanella's character. Luna
also is well known for her co-starring role opposite William Shatner in the cult
favorite "Mirror Mirror" or alternate universe episode of Star Trek TOS.

May 11, 2010 - The Other Man - found?
I ran across
this by contacting a poster on imdb for the movie, The Other Man, which seems
to have quite a following among female fans of Roy Thinnes. You can
find a DVD-R version of this film by going to this site:
Just type in The Other Man in the search box and there is a listing for
the video for 19.95.
I am not in any way endorsing this listing, but providing information
for those fans out there who are seeking some kind of recording of this
film, which, by the way, I have never seen. This is kind of stop-gap
measure until we can collectively convince NBC Universal, the owners of
the original film, to release it on DVD. If enough people write,
perhaps they would consider a limited DVD release.
PS Still working on the financing for The Invaders film. Trying other
avenues while waiting for the first. Keep in mind that in the world of
film financing, regardless of how well connected you are, it can take
upwards of decades to get from script to screen. That's the nature of
the game and I've been in it since 1978 and have been seeking funding
for The Invaders in particular since 2001.
