“Without sounding smug, I’ve always felt that you have to be well prepared when old man opportunity comes knocking. I always wanted to be an actor, and so I did everything possible to prepare myself for my career.”
         ….. Jeffrey Hunter

“Be natural, sincere and honest on and off screen and stage or radio. A good acting job must come from the mind and heart.”
         ….. Jeffrey Hunter

“He was the finest, most decent man I’ve ever known.”
         ….. Longtime friend Lee Riordan

“Despite his looks and talent, there was nothing of the snob about Hank. His voice was quiet and gentle and his manners came right out of the Civil War South.”

A Mini-Tribute…

Jeffrey Hunter, born Hank McKinnies, was a fine actor. His career spanned a wide range of roles:

Jeff acted opposite some of the greatest screen actors of his day:  notably John Wayne – in The Searchers , and Spencer Tracy – in The Last Hurrah.

He performed in many 1950’s radio dramas and made numerous appearances on TV series, especially during the 1960’s – including a role as a serial killer (!) on the very first episode of the popular series The FBI. During NBC-TV’s 1963-64 season, he starred in his own series, Temple Houston, as a frontier lawyer in the Old West.

Perhaps his most unforgettable role was as Jesus Christ in the film King of Kings, though many fans first discovered Jeffrey Hunter as the iconic first captain of the starship USS Enterprise – Christopher Pike, in the early days of Star Trek.

We dedicate this website with love and gratitude to Jeffrey Hunter, whose work as an actor, and whose untimely death in 1969, touched the lives of so many.
