Movie-A-Day #81: Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979).
Wow. Today is the 80th(!) birthday of the inimitable William Shatner. He’s played a lot of memorable roles over the years, but he’s always be Captain James T. Kirk. “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” took the franchise to the big screen, eventually spurring a string of sequels and four spinoff television series. I think Shatner’s place in pop culture history is more than secure.
