Jeffery Hunter was a movie star before he was Captain Pike so he was obviously in a lot of things. Flipping through the channels one night I came across the movie Hell to Eternity in which Hunter is horribly miscast as a Mexican American. He plays Guy Gabaldon a Marine hero who is credited with getting 2,000 Japanese to surrender. He learned Japanese when he was taken in as a boy by a Japanese family. His "brother" was played by a 23 year old George Takei. Not a great movie but an interesting story.
