30 Greatest Charlton Heston Movies Ranked Worst To Best

Charlton Heston

In 1999, Charlton Heston joined Karl Malden in pressing for an Honorary Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement to be given to veteran director Elia Kazan, a man whose record re the HUAC was nothing to be proud of. Marlon Brando, who never made public appearances, refused to present the award to Kazan, so Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese ultimately did.

On 18 June 1968, Heston appeared on The Joey Bishop Show and, along with Gregory Peck, James Stewart and Kirk Douglas, called for gun controls following the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy! Thirty years later, he was elected President of the National Rifle Association of America (NRA) and campaigned vigorously against any form of gun control. Ironically, Heston was a vocal supporter of the Gun Control Act of 1968, signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. At the time of his death the actor owned over four hundred modern and antique guns.

Tootsie (1982) * * * *

Dustin Hoffman as Tootsie

To prepare for his gender-bending role as ‘Tootsie’ in the 1982 satirical romantic comedy of the same name, Dustin Hoffman watched the 1978 film La Cage aux Folles several times, and visited the set of General Hospital for research. He was genuinely shocked (and disappointed) that, although he could pass inspection as a woman, he could not appear as a beautiful one. He confessed to finding ‘Tootsie’ interesting, but admitted he would never speak to her at a party because she was just not beautiful! While making the film he went out on the town – in drag – and bumped into Jon Voight. Pretending to be a fan, he chatted to the actor for around twenty minutes and Voight did not catch on. When Hoffman visited his daughter’s school, also in drag, and pretended to be her ‘Aunt Dorothy’ from Little Rock, the teacher, too, was completely taken in.

  1. Zeppelin and Arrow seem like two of the less-cringeworthy appellations bestowed upon unsuspecting infants by “advanced” parents. The poor kids could have been “Blimp” and “Hypo”(dermic). Some of these kids wind up with more conventional middle names–at least they have some choice in the matter.
