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 ...
