Pic of the Day: “Angels on Ice” revisited

Today we look again at the Charlie’s Angels episode “Angels on Ice”. It was first aired on September 21, 1977. Timothy displays his stellar profile as he and Lee Delano work on their evil plan to assassinate world leaders during an Ice Capades-style show.

At the helm for this episode was Robert (Bob) Kelljan, who began his career as a character actor in such 1960s drive-in classics as Hells Angels on Wheels (1967) and Psych-Out (1968). He soon moved behind the camera, blessing us all with Count Yorga, Vampire (1970), The Return of Count Yorga (1971) and Scream Blacula Scream (1973) (I’m not being snarky, I’m completely serious – I truly love these films!). Series television provided steady work, and he was busy directing right up until his tragic death from cancer at age 52.

Thank God it’s Friday! We close the work week with another look at the Charlie’s Angels episode “Angels on Ice,” first gliding into homes across America on September 21, 1977. Timothy and his fellow gang members, including Lee Delano (leaning across Tim), are enjoying a communal meal and an awkward belly dance by Kelly (Jaclyn Smith) at a Middle Eastern restaurant.

Here’s wishing you all a great weekend! Visit your local Middle Eastern dining establishment, stuff yourselves with yummy food and tip your belly dancers generously! Unlike Ms. Smith, they are professionals. (No offense, Jaclyn.)

Delano was a busy character actor in films and on television for over 30 years. He also did lots of stage work and co-founded a theater and drama school. Trekkies will remember him as Kalo in my favorite episode of the original Star Trek series, “A Piece of the Action” (1968).
