Bill Shatner was not the first Hollywood star to use Esperanto, through his Incubus film. Charlie Chaplin used it in "The Great Dictator" on all the shop signs, and Laurel & Hardy used it their film "The Road to Morocco".

Parts of Charlie Chaplin's Esperanto contribution can be seen on

I stayed up late watching Godard in USA. The next day, very sleepy, I went to a Light Industry presentation of the work of Ken Jacobs and met a guy named Jake. He said he had just finished editing and arranging a Godard film that he had bought five years ago for $500 not knowing how he would ever make use of it. He has made very good use of it indeed.
