Shatner has been much underrated as an actor since he became Jim Kirk.
This just brought to mind a piece of trivia regarding the film "The Intruder" starring Shatner and directed by Roger Corman (excerpt copy and pasted form IMDB):

"Producer Roger Corman allegedly blamed star William Shatner's performance for the box-office failure of the movie, and the breaking of Corman's perfect track record of successes. Shatner jokingly suggested years later that the re-release title "I Hate Your Guts!" was probably aimed at him."

Again my opinion, but having Hunter leave was a happy accident ...
Well, not so happy for Jeff Hunter considering his ultimate fate.
