Recommended Posts

Jeffrey Hunter was a ruggedly handsome actor, popular in the 50s and 60s, and best known as Captain Christopher Pike on "Star Trek."

Hunter was on track for a long career when he suffered unfortunate, probably related, back-to-back injuries in 1968 and 1969: the first, a concussion sustained by an on-set implosion; the second, an intracranial hemorrhage incurred by hitting his head after a fall.

More prolific in film than television, Hunter was in dozens of movies between 1950 and 1969, including his roles as Martin Pawley in "The Searchers" (1956), and Jesus Christ in "King of Kings" (1960).

Rockology:
The Alfred Hitchcock Hour - Harold in "Don't Look Behind You"
"Star Trek" - Captain Christopher Pike in "The Cage" and "The Menagerie"
