I’m currently reading (and enjoying) William Shatner’s autobiography. In it, he talks about a low budget movie he made just before “Star Trek” called “Incubus”. He talks about getting the original script (in English) and signing on to the project. It was only after agreeing to do the film that the director told everyone that the film would be shot in the constructed language, Esperanto, a failed but noble attempt to introduce a universal language. Not only that, even when not filming, the cast and crew all had to speak Esperanto!
By his own admission, William Shatner is well-known for making up stories so I found this hard to believe.
But it’s true.
Here is a trailer for the DVD with Shatner taking on the Succubi Sisters. The trailer is ever-so-slightly tongue-in-cheek but reports are that the movie is actually not too bad despite its low budget status. And don’t worry – there are English sub-titles.
I’m tempted to get this one!
