THE SATICONS ARE BACK
Steven Cateris has told us about a new Australian film called 'Mental.' The Saticons from Lost in Space are in it! One of the characters, Michelle, thinks aliens from outer space are visiting her in her bedroom. The aliens are the Saticons, and they say "We want the mechanical man" (just like in 'Wreck of the Robot.') Toni Collette breaks in to her bedroom and says, "You can't give them the mechanical man because you're not a character from Lost in Space." Later in the film, Michelle says, "Those aliens are from Lost in Space, aren't they?" Toni Collette's character Shaz says, "Great episode! But not as good as the one Dr Smith turns into a tree." The credits acknowledge Space Productions for use of the Saticons from Lost in Space, although the actors are described as playing the Faceless Figures.

FRANCINE YORK INTERVIEW
Message from Francine
Hi to you all in my favorite country. I hope to visit you in the very near future - my biggest joy is studying English history. I even played Lily Langtry the famous English actress, mistress to Edward V11. I feel like when I see the actual places and paintings of the Kings that I would be visiting old friends because I know so much about your country and history - not too much about mine. I am so glad to see that Lost in Space and Irwin Allen are still big in your country. I know that Niolani was my all time favorite role, and Land of the Giants. etc. - what a great film maker he was and what a character. The Actors Reporter interview I just finished covers Irwin and Lost in Space quite a bit. I hope you all get to see it . It is in five parts and about one hour. You can also see my clips from my Marilyn Monroe picture which are on YouTube. Again best to all of you and hoping to see you in person one day!!
