Today I learned that “HIll Street Blues” star Daniel J. Travanti appeared in an episode of “Lost in Space.”

Here’s Travanti in costume on “Lost in Space:”

And Travanti’s “Hll Street” co-star, Veronica Hamel, was a model in the last cigarette commercial that aired on TV in the US, for Virginia Slims, in 1971.

Here’s the commercial.

There’s so much going on in that commercial, and so much of it is wrong, and it’s wonderful. Veronica Hamel is dressed in full hippie regalia and she’s smoking. Literally and figuratively.
