Spocklight: A Star Trek Podcast

Supplemental 4: Interview with Robert Sallin

September 21, 2017

In a special episode to celebrate the 35th Anniversary re-release of 'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan' we're joined by the film's Producer, Robert Sallin, for an exclusive interview. 

Robert tells Liam, Paul and Matt how he went from directing over 2,000 commercials to producing what many consider to be the greatest Star Trek film ever made, talking them through his creative input into the iconic red uniforms, the monstrous Ceti Eels, Kirk's grand entrance and much, much more. 

We also delve into the rest of Robert's glittering Hollywood career, including directing Albert Finney in 'The Picasso Summer', winning the Grand Prix at the 1970 Venice film Festival for his classic Camay commerical, stepping in as the 2nd Unit Director on 'Assassins' for Richard Donner and more showbiz anecdotes than you can shake a Klingon at - Ridley Scott, Eddie Murphy, John Candy, they're all here. So strap in and get ready for your Kobayashi Maru, this is the big one.
