Charlton Heston
Hollywood – that’s where they give Oscars to people like Charlton Heston for acting!
(Shirley Knight)
Although we all like to think that cinema is the most important culture on earth, we are fooling ourselves in the same way Charlton Heston is each morning when he sticks a Shredded Wheat on his head.
(Boyd Farrow)
Actor, The Ten Commandments (1956)
Heston throws all his punches in the first ten minutes (three grimaces and two intonations) so that he has nothing left four hours later when he has to react to the Crucifixion. (He does make it clear, I must admit, that he disapproves.)
(Dwight Macdonald, Esquire)
Heston has a fine hatchet face on which a beard looks well, and nothing else.
(Henrietta Lehman, Films in Review)
Actor, Ben-Hur (1959)
When I arrived for the filming of Ben Hur, all the sets had been built, including Charlton Heston.
(Gore Vidal)
