William Shatner Travels Back In Time To Kill Shakespeare In This Short

Angered by his own inability to recite iambic pentameter, actor William Shatner hops inside a time-traveling robot to kill Shakespeare. But his plot against the bard doesn't go as planned.


AMAA Productions' Action Bill is five minutes of pure stop-motion silliness. The affectionately lampooned Shatner didn't count on another Star Trek actor rushing (quite appropriately) to the playwright's rescue.

Shatner was playing in the Stratford Shakespeare Festival when Patrick Stewart was a high school freshman.
