Hmm

JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBERG, of course.

THE ANDERSONVILLE TRIAL.

His over-the-top Artemis Gordon clone in BARBARY COAST.

Denny Crane!

THE ANDERSONVILLE TRIAL -- I certainly echo that choice!

Mr. Shatner can certainly chew scenery with the best (his Columbo, Mission: Impossible and Six Million Dollar Man guest spots come to mind) but for me there's no question he is capable of truly excellent work even if sometimes he settles for being perfectly interesting and entertaining rather than perfectly lifelike. His work in TOS has been reduced to ridiculous stereotypes by some but in the first couple seasons in particular, I am hard pressed to imagine anyone who could have done a better job in that role.

Iíve pointed out many a time that the. Shatner. read. really didnít take hold until after TOS, mostly thru BARBARY COAST.

I'm fond of Shatner's performance in WRATH OF KHAN. I particularly love his scene with Bibi Besch, the "There's a man out there I haven't seen in fifteen years who wants to kill me. You show me a son that'd be happy to help him." speech.
