UFO (In Black And White)


Here are just a handful of black and white images from UFO, ironically, from the colorful wonderful world of all things Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.

Putting aside all of those gorgeous purple wigs and the colors that brought the Gerry Anderson series UFO (1970-1973) to life, we give you some behind the scenes shots of the women of UFO and one with the late Ed Bishop as fearless commander of SHADO Ed Straker working with the late, great Gerry Anderson himself (alongside Peter Gordeno).

It's unfortunate the planned second season of UFO never lifted off and inevitably morphed into Space:1999. Wouldn't both unique and special series have been perfect to air side by side for a time?

The women of UFO were positively gorgeous as seen here with both Gabrielle Drake and Antonia Ellis (both below) as well as mother of actor Benedict Cumberbatch, the stunning Wanda Ventham (above).

It's a FAB FRIDAY indeed!

And the UFO Moonbase that would inspire Moonbase Alpha for Space:1999 (1975-1977).
