|Leonard Nimoy and Paul Mazursky|
Paul Mazursky: I have with me an actor, a poet, a singer, a photographer, ...
... and a man for earings.
Paul Mazursky: Well, Leonard Nimoy is an old friend of mien, we've known each other for I guess ...
Paul Mazursky: And here is the rabbi who gave Leonard - how do you call this?
So, sure enough everybody has got their eyes covered, got their talids over their heads, and I was about eight or nine years old and I peeked. I wanted to see what's going on, and I saw these guys doing this with their hand towards the congregation and their heads covered. It was mysterious. And I hadnt any idea what was going on and I was fascinated with this gesture. And I leaned how to do it, practiced it any time, any place, until I could do that.
Paul Mazursky: My favorite story about Leonard and myself was when Leonard got the part of Spock. He called me and said: 'Paul, here's Leonard, I have a problem and I want to talk to you. They want me to go to Dallas, Texas, and open a supermarket. They give me 10.000 bugs and they fly me there and fly me back.
All I have to do is to get there and say 'Welcome' and get 10.000. I don't want to do that because they want me to wear the ears. I'm not going to wear the ears. I don't want to wear these fucking ears all the time. I said: Are you crazy? All you have to do is be Spock, so I have a solution:
Give me the money. I'll split the money with you, I take 5 gees, I'll wear the ears and you get the money. Leonard said: 'When do I leave?' And he was gone. That's a true story. A true story! Leonard, my friend, good to see you!
