    Right off a film print of this rare TV show, here are some scenes from "For the People," a 1965 series starring William Shatner, just before he became Captain Kirk! Shatner plays an obsessive New York City assistant district attorney who gets into trouble because of his passion for justice, in this black-and-white series that ran for 13 episodes. This episode, "Seized, Confined, and Detained" ran on April 25, 1965. This video shows the opening titles, some various scenes with stars who became rather important in their own right, and some commercials. Some commercial breaks had only ONE commercial...unheard of today!!!
