Boston Legal??
15 December 2007 | by macheath-nySee all my reviews

Definitely not.

Bellamy and Shatner were in one vignette among a dozen, entitled "Light one Candle" and involving a conversation between two Roman tax collectors in Bethlehem on the day of Jesus' birth.

My knowledge of this comes from my role in another of the vignettes entitled "Miracle of the Orphanage" which featured Jessica Tandy, Margaret Hamilton, Bernadette Peters and Richard Thomas. Other vignettes featured those listed in the cast list.

Since the database requires 10 lines I'll try to keep my extraneous comments to a minimum
