My brother and I spent an hour or so yesterday at an outside cafe (ok, bar) listening to (ok, participating in) a fairly loud argument about who was cooler: Robert Conrad (star of The Wild Wild West) or William Shatner (star of Star Trek), and who would kick the other's ass. It turns out that Robert Conrad did most of his own stunts and made up for his altitudinal limitations by rigorously studying pugilism, while Shatner is just the world's coolest has-been. Verdict: Conrad, sort of.

Actually, I'm embarassed to admit that I know that Shatner also did some of his own fight stunts on _Star Trek_. But I'm with you that Conrad is a bigger badass.
