Jeffrey Hunter Facts
Following in the footsteps of fellow heartthrob turned hit crooner Tab Hunter, he recorded a never-released album of love songs for Parade Records in 1957, some of which he wrote, including "Dusty", dedicated to his new wife.

Served in the United States Navy, under the service number 960 39 80, from May 28, 1945 to May 25, 1946. Received a Medical Discharge as a Seaman First Class and was awarded the World War II Victory Medal.

In a radio interview in Palm Springs on November 7, 2005, Laurel Goodwin, his co-star in the Star Trek pilot, revealed his wife at the time, Joan Bartlett, demanded he get more money to continue performing in the lead role when the series was picked up as a regular series. After long negotiations, the producers, feeling great pressure, decided to simply recast Hunter for a new actor and captain, James Tiberius Kirk, played by William Shatner. The crew was also recast to bring different ethnic backgrounds to the cast to show how they co-existed peacefully in the future.
