Heston … Call me Chuck

It`s been quite a ride.
– Charlton Heston

Most of us folks leave no mark to show our passage. Others stomp all over the damn thing.

I’ve been trying to do a bio on Charlton Heston for The Big Country. But he’s too big.

He keeps falling off the page … and filling up the room. So much so that I figure I better stick distinctly to his Westerns – or I’ll end up with a book.

A Man for All Seasons? The Greatest Show on Earth … ??
Maybe not … but damn sure worth a look.

I don’t say I find favor with all he said and did, but you can’t help but end up admiring what we know of his extensive journey.

So I’ll battle onward …

But there’s no way we can sum up some of these folks …

  1. Amazing !! You are favored.
    Most celebrities are just ordinary folks – nothing wrong with that. But some are special – worthy of their fame. Heston was surely one such individual.

  2. I met Charlton Heston in the mid 70s at the premiere of Midway, along with Henry Fonda and a bunch of other famous folks. Garry was interviewing Mr. Heston for Channel 7. The premiere was in NY and Ch. 7 was putting him up in a really nice hotel in Manhattan. He invited me. I said I felt the flu coming on and skipped out of work to go with him. Not something I was going to miss. Chuck was a most gracious, cordial man … the nicest celebrity — and the most modest — I ever met. He said that the most important thing a movie star needs to know is how to sleep on airplanes. Really. I have never forgotten that.
