More real hair reflexes.

This example of Bill Shatner touching his own hair is from the final Star Trek episode "Turnabout Intruder". It is almost identical to the moves illustrated in our previous post, in which Shats describes this particular performance.

As a last episode "Turnabout Intruder" is far from good, but as a stand-alone episode, we think it's thoroughly entertaining and Shats gives a great performance as an evil woman.

On a related note - a reader has mentioned a toup scratching moment in a documentary on the DVD release of the movie Free Enterprise. We don't have this in our toupology archives, so if anyone has and can post the clip somewhere, we'd be very grateful!


  1. I'm not sure if Turnabout Intruder was meant to be the final episode. I do think it was a good episode. The only downer is that Uhura isn't in it.

    I read somewhere that Shatner a clause in his contract to direct the 25th and 26th episodes of the 3rd season, which would've been after this one. Sadly it never happened.

    From a toupee view - you can see how much longer and wavier it had become. Probably to be more in line with the general mood in the country as the hippie movement was starting to come to an end.

  2. Attitoupe: Fellows sporting chips on their shoulders and bad hairpieces on their heads.

  3. Shatner works his attitoupe

  4. MVPOnline makes a fascinating point. What if TOS had continued? Meaning, what would the toup have morphed into as Kirk crossed into the early 1970's?
