  • Favorite Heston Film

    It may seem silly, but of all of the Biblical, & historical figures that Mr. Charlton Heston had portrayed in film, it is this film that has been my favorite. Maybe because it is a complete departure from his stoic, square-jawed roles and taking a turn at comedy that has made me enjoy his other films all the more. This film and his role as the jungle plantation owner in 'The Naked Jungle' are my favorites. He always seem to give 110% to each of his performances, but it's always nice to see a great actor take a departure from his greater-than-life roles for something quite different.

    I served as a cadet in a Marine Corps JROTC Unit and this moviebrings back many fond memories from that time. It would be wonderfulif TCM could help make this film available in DVD. PS: Charlton Hestonis great in this role as the Major!

    I have always hoped you would air this movie. I have not seen this since the 60's when I was a kid. This is a great family movie and Charleston Heston is great in it along with the other cast members. I was hoping someday it will be on DVD. Hope to see it on air!

  • Great movie better than the remake

    i LOVE this movie! Heston is so wonderful in this-he is not "larger than life", he is HUMAN and proves once again that he could DO all sorts of roles! He is fun/humorous/everyman and just Splendid! This is such a great movie to "entertain" and enjoy, i cannot believe it is not on CD! i just recommend this so much for Heston fans as it is just "different"-it has humanity and silliness and just fine acting. Heston will be known for his "epic" roles, but he was a consumate actor and actually our "American" Olivier! Something to watch for the whole family....and WHY cannot movies be made like this anymore?

    This is another film I would like to see on TCM, and once again, it is not on DVD. I have been begging for months to have "Dear Ruth" shown on TCM, I wonder how long I will have to ask for this one?
