Re: What's Roddenberry's problem with HAIR?

The way I understand it, in the mid sixties Shatner wasn't actually bald, but he did have very fine hair and the hair stylists just could do anything with it, it would just laid there. That why he wore a rug, not just on Star Trek, but on other acting jobs too.

According to this authoritative source, Bill Shatner started wearing an on-screen toupee in 1957 as his hairline began to recede while he was still in his twenties. No one has been able to find a photo of Shatner sans toupee taken later than 1959.
