William Shatner As Edgar Allan Poe

There was a time when Will Shatner fancied himself to be a serious dramatic actor. He played his roles with epic intensity, complete with long pauses and other trademark “Shatnerisms.

All of it was unintentional comedy gold.

Watch him play Edgar Allan Poe in this television clip, broadcast in 1983 on Halloween day.
