Who Mourns For Adonis?


Americans, what does this resemble? This is the classic STAR TREK episode WHO MOURNS FOR ADONIS? The temple set is designed to make its occupant look big. It turns out that Apollo is not a God, but an alien whose flashy technology awed his audiences. As Arthur Clarke said, any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. The blonde woman in the short skirt is Leslie Parrish, whose other notable credit was THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE.

Leslie Parrish was once married to Richard Bach who wrote Jonathan Livingston Seagull, an allegory about transcendence via flight. Richard Bach was also a fighter pilot.
