|Don Harron and William Shatner in The Taming of the Shrew (1954).|
On October 21st at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto, William Shatner will be honoured with the Legacy Award of the Stratford Festival. He will be the third to receive the award; Christopher Plummer and Maggie Smith got theirs in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
After Stratford Festival director Tyrone Guthrie recommended that the future starship captain join the festival, Shatner spent two years with the company; from 1954 to 1956.
