Thanks, Cinema!

In the movie Halloween (1978) the villain, Michael Myers wears a mask.  The movie's production designer bought two masks at a magic shop.  The first was an Emmet Kelly (clown) mask but they decided against it.  They chose to use the second mask, painting it white, cutting wider eye holes and pulling the hair back.   What actor is the rubbery mask that Michael Myers wears?

Hint:  The original mask vs the same mask painted white, with bigger eye holes and slick back hair as used in Halloween

The actor has been in movies with Yul Brenner, Spencer Tracy, Edward G Robinson but is best known for his role on a 1960's TV show.  The mask was advertised as a mask of his well-known TV character.  He also played this character in movies.

 

Michael Myers' Halloween Mask WAS Shatner's Face

Looks like William Shatner as Captain Kirk

That's it.  Well done, Lavender!  I just found this out recently.  Apparently, William Shatner was not pleased.

This is the first thing that came to mind.  Robert Reed played Mike Brady, the father on "The Brady Bunch", and he had a recurring role on "Mannix" as a police detective named Adam Tobias.

Yes,  you must be watching re-runs on Me tv too lol

 Robert Reed was Dad Mike Brady on The Brady Bunch, while also playing Adam Tobias, a Police Detective on Mannix at the same time. Good thinking Mr. Miles , your thread 😀
