Subject: BS: Shatner's a fraud.
From: Davetnova
Date: 22 Apr 05 - 02:52 PM

I've just been watching Buster Crabbe's Planet outlaws. Buck Rodgers is Shatner! No wait, I mean he's just a copy. I never realised what a seminal influence Buster had been to me, Saturday morning Cinema, Gravity belts, Wilma. The uniforms are Star Trek, decades early. The hero, Shatner can only wish. Wrath of Khan, huh, Killer Kane.
Shatner, you're a fraud.

You bet he is! Buck Rogers Rules! (And he's All-American!)

Rogers is a former U.S. Air Service support pilot who served in France during World War I. After being mustered out, he worked as a surveyor in Pennsylvania where he was trapped in a mine by a cave-in and overcome by a strange, radioactive gas that put him in a state of suspended animation for 500 years. Upon awakening (the beginning of the story), the first person he sees is Wilma Deering, who mistakes him for an outlaw and tries to shoot him. Grabbing her ray gun when she trips a root, he kills the outlaws and wins her confidence. Spotting Buck as a man to be trusted (and perhaps loved), she brings him up to date and tells him of the Mongol plot to dominate the world. Donning the jumping belt of one of the fallen outlaws, he joins Wilma for a tour of magnificent cites of "metalloglass" where 25th century citizens eat synthetic food, travel by air (roads are almost nonexistent), and have a number of ingenious art deco gadgets to do all the drudge work. In no time at all, Buck has become a captain of Earth's military forces, a secret agent, an intelligence officer and head of the Rocket Rangers, with Wilma as his co-pilot and the brilliant Dr. Huer as his advisor. They spend the next 38 years battling the Mongols, Killer Kane and his untrustworthy partner-in-crime, the malevolently beautiful Ardala.

William Shatner

If you want to do some comparing, here are a few more:

Buster Crabbe

Gil Gerrard (this guy is barely a blip at Google under his own name. Definitely an under-acheiver once his superhero program went away).

George Reeves

Johnny Weissmuller was Tarzan in the Saturday afternoon movies when I was a kid. I never understood why they tried to remake them.

A bonus: My mother's idea of a hunky heart-throb still looks pretty good by today's standards-- Victor Mature

Ha! Ha! Get a grip. Shatner is no fraud. He is simply the be-all and the end-all, the Ubermensch, the Master, the Alpha and Omega all wrapped up in one gloriously incomparable package of masculine pulchritude and panache. He rules. Others drool. That's all you gotta know.

OH!

So let me see if I have this right. Shatner who's really Kirk was born in Canada but the character he plays who hasn't really been born yet was born in Iowa.

gnu, I am WITH you. Got it.

BUT, if he hasn't been born yet, then how do they know he was born in Iowa? Huh? G'head. Tell me that.

Unbelieveable that there are still those who know not of his true works of art, but, yet, judge him as if he was simply a TV stooge, on a long forgotten planet of poor acting for a generation so self-involved that they know little of even themselves. True art, indeed. And we are the better for it, if only we observe his genius.

The first one is beautiful. The second one I can't access (access is denied). I find that happens with a lot of the blue clickies for some reason. If Shatner was put in charge of everything, that would not be happening, I can assure you.
