Before William Shatner was Captain Kirk and Adam West was Batman, they filmed a pilot (below) called Alexander the Great.  Shatner in a miniskirt? Bathtub scene?  Check and check.  The pilot filmed in 1964, but didn’t air until 1968, after West and Shatner had become household names.  West was hoping no one would ever see this pilot, but he of all people should know that some days you just can’t get rid of a bomb.

He once resolved the question “To be or not to be?” through the clever use of General Semantics. Your mom thinks you could be more like him if you only applied yourself.
