Meyer's audio commentaries are worthwhile lessons in directing. He got Montalban to dial it back (if you can believe that) and therefore make Khan more
deadly, and worked out how to get a decent performance out of Shatner. The age factor thing someone quoted is bullshit. A good film is a good film no matter when it was made or when you saw it. By that reckoning I should like the TNG films more, but I don't.
