This magazine and back issues can be purchased directly from the Infinity website in both print and digital format. Note that there have been several articles on the Irwin Allen shows and their cast members in previous issues of Infinity magazine, so it is worth browsing through their back issues too.

MARK GODDARD

Mark Goddard - Lost in Space

It has been with great sadness that we have learned this evening of the passing of Lost in Space star Mark Goddard on 10th October via Bill Mumy on Facebook. Mark and his work have been a feature in our lives for as long as we can remember. Our thoughts tonight are with Mark Goddard's family and friends including all of the Lost in Space cast who formed lifelong friendships with Mark after working on the show.

SPACE BEAUTY ALIEN TUNIC

Several people have asked us about the costumes recently auctioned in the Heritage Auctions Comisar Collection (2-4 June 2023) and wanted to know where they can be seen in episodes. The first costume is the alien tunic with 6 arms. The costume was worn by a Space Beauty contestant in Season Three. The tunic also appeared in an earlier episode, Two Weeks in Space, worn by Carroll Roebke (Tat) and Edy Williams (Non), minus the extra arms.

KIDNAPPED IN SPACE JUMPSUIT

The second costume we have received questions about is the orange jumpsuit. We have not found any scenes featuring Penny (Angela Cartwright) wearing the costume, but did find the outfit in the third season Lost in Space episode Kidnapped in Space. The outfit was worn by two characters "1220" (played by Carol Williams) and "1246". If you find any episodes featuring Penny in the costume, please let us know.

THE SATICONS ARE BACK

The Saticons in Lost in Space 'The Galaxy Gift'

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

Francine York - Niolani in the Lost in Space episode The Colonists

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!!

Yours always,

NIOLANI
