LOST IN SPACE CONTACT SHEETS #02
Lost in Space is a science fiction themed TV series produced by television producer Irwin Allen for the American television
network CBS. The show ran for three seasons, with eighty three first run original episodes airing between September 15, 1965
and March 6, 1968, replacing the short lived World War One TV series. A pilot episode without the robot or the Dr. Smith
character, was filmed but never broadcast.
The series was the most expensive in television broadcast history. Each episode was estimated to cost $400,000, quite a sum
in the mid sixties. It remained the most expensive tv series ever until Space: 1999.
Many of the contact sheets featured here are quite rare. In fact, many of these have never been seen by the public or fans
until now. There were many film shots or out-takes taken on the series, and the actors. So many taken, that many of the shots
were taken for promotional use, but later never used either do to cost, or cancellation of the show? Regardless of there value
or purpose, these contact sheets today are very collectible and valueable in the hands of collectors.
