Charlton Heston’s books
In recent years, Charlton Heston was more well known for his role with the National Rifle Association than his Oscar-winning acting performances. It is interesting to look at his career from several points in time, just to see how opinions have changed.
Heston himself has written a few books about his life and times:
From 1978 The Actor’s Life: Journals, 1956-1976 by Charlton Heston
From 1990 Beijing Diary: The personal story of a remarkable theatrical and political event by Charlton Heston
From 1995 In the Arena: An Autobiography
I think this weekend I am going to rent Ben Hur. Fans of the film should take a look at this, it’s a pretty amazing collector’s piece.
