Re: Stunt double madness

Yes, I thought of Finnerman's work when writing it, but I was referring to Space Seed's engineering set in the post.

And perhaps Gary Combs wasn't the best double for Shatner. Physically, Paul Baxley was probably a closer match for body and movement, with great effectiveness in "Mirror, Mirror".

We had a 25" color tv when Star Trek aired in the 60s, and it was usually easy to spot the stunt Kirks. One of the most effective uses of Kirk doubles is in "The Enemy Within" when both Kirks are fighting in sickbay, though it's minimal stunt work, primarily movement blocking with actor Don Eitner.
