Well, he was in movies

Today is the 80th birthday of actor William Shatner. I get a laugh every time I think of him in the cast of Judgement at Nuremberg, alongside all of those great names. Shatner plays the military adjutant to the judge played by Spencer Tracy, so it's relatively easy to find photos of Shatner with Tracy. Not having seen the movie in some time, I don't know which of the other famous actors he shares screen time with. But it would be fun to see photos or screencaps of Shatner with Marlene Dietrich or Judy Garland.

Shatner actually made a fair number movies before playing Captain Kirk in Star Trek, including one of the brothers in The Brothers Karamazov, but he was much, much more active in television. One movie I have mentioned briefly is The Explosive Generation, but that's not available on DVD.
