iMac display going bad, can I connect a MBP to it in some way so that I can transfer files from...

I need to get some files off of an old iMac. This iMac is model that has the white half-round base that looks sort of like a lamp. 

(It looks like this, not sure if its this exact model or a newer one: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/specs/imac_800_17_fp.html)

 

The display is very garbled, I can only read about half of the scene and this part that I can read is distorted.

 

 

I've got a 2006 MBP and a new 2012 MBP that I can use to connect to it. Can I connect either of these in some way (firewire or ethernet or some other way) so that I can see it's HD on my MBP and copy the files over?

 

 

Thanks in advance to all who answer...
