About this title


Documents the actor's career through behind-the-scenes looks at all of his movies and anecdotes about the actors, actresses, and directors with whom he has worked

From Booklist:

Heston is one star who knows how to keep his name above the title. His recent election as president of the National Rifle Association once again puts him in the limelight and boosts the appeal of this heavily illustrated review of his movie career. Isbouts, producer of the CD-ROM extravaganza Charlton Heston's Voyage through the Bible, contributes a biographical continuum, into which what seems to be transcribed oral commentary by Heston, punctuated with wry and affectionate remarks from his wife, Lydia (e.g., "You must understand . . . he loves death scenes"), is liberally inserted--hence Heston's coauthor credit. Isbouts draws on the published reminiscences of such major coworkers on Heston's best films as William Wyler, director of Ben-Hur, to make the survey more interesting than most of its type. There is still too much of the production statistics, reviewers' remarks, and box-office reports that usually make this kind of book so tedious and not enough about the craft and aesthetics of filmmaking (Franklin Schaffner, the fine director of Planet of the Apes, isn't even mentioned in connection with it). But as a shiny supplement to Heston's autobiography, In the Arena (1995), which simply had too few pictures, it fills the bill. Ray Olson
