MS William Shatner rehearsing on stage, overacting & being as dramatically hammy as Captain Kirk was in his later interpretations: "Planet as it climbs towards the sun!" Sideview MS conductor waving baton. CU William Shatner being interviewed, speaking to off-screen reporter about multimedia event: "I m going to do Arthur C.

I m doing that to music by Charles Ives and Stravinsky and lasers and effects and background projection. Kind of a unique idea. I will be on for about 20 minutes with the symphony & that s my contribution to the evening s entertainment. I might add that it s terrific entertainment." Sideview MS/CUs conductor waving baton.
