Bill Shatner's long-hair phase.
At some point during the 1970s, almost every Hollywood actor grew their hair a little longer than usual - it was just the fashion of the day. But did Bill? Yes...
Here we have some stills from the 1973 TV movie The Horror at 37,000 Feet - by Shats' own admission, not one of his best filmic outings. Bill's real hair round the back and sides appears to be as long as we've ever seen it (unless you toupologists out there know otherwise). Sadly, the toup doesn't quite do justice to this hairstyle - but the less said about that, the better!
However, with the longer hair, we are offered a reminder that Bill Shatner's real hair is indeed curly and not straight. Perhaps appearances like this one led him to choose the new "Trek movie look" curly toupees as the mis-match here between real and not real is indeed very strong.
PS. On a non-toup related matter (if there is such a thing with Shats!), isn't it fun to see Bill Shatner randomly popping up in places like with his recent take on Sarah Palin's resigntaion speech, which became a viral hit on Tuesday? As someone once said: It's Shatner's world, we just live in it. Here's something else we found - William Shatner and the Beatles together at last!:
