Just when you thought you couldn't like him any more

Shatner does the Psalms. With Raymond Burr...

and oddly, also George Lucas.

This DVD was based on a series of interpretations of 7 Psalms from the bible in 1962. The 5 minute adaptations include a then new comer William Shatner along with Raymond Burr. In another very odd twist of fate the camera man on some of these pieces was George Lucas (of Star Wars fame.)

Once thought to be lost forever these pieces are available on DVD for the first time ever!

The lineup of the DVD includes:

By the Wayside – Psalm 2 The Soldier, featuring William Shatner – Psalm 41 The Crowd, featuring William Shatner – Psalm 3 The Lord is My Shepherd – Psalm 23 The Escape – Psalm 1 His Dwelling Place – Psalm 83 Once Upon A Morning – Psalm 139 The Search – Several Psalms, reflection by Raymond Burr

If you are a William Shatner fan, then this DVD needs to be in your collection. This DVD may never be available again.

Hollywood is definitely weirder than the real world.

There is also a film version, somewhere, of a Stratford Production of Oedipus Rex in which WS plays a bit part. Saw it once, in a double feature with Bambi meets Godzilla, which we played both forwards and backwards. I liked both versions.
