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 …
