Private Screenings: Charlton Heston
The pinnacle of Heston's career came with Ben-Hur (1959), a film that won 11 Oscars®, including a Best Actor award for Heston. His success continued in films like The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965) where he appeared as John the Baptist and in cult sci-fi films like Planet of the Apes (1968) and Soylent Green (1973). In his over 60 films, Heston became known for his ability to bring great men of history to life. He played everyone from Moses, in The Ten Commandments (1956), to Michelangelo in The Agony and the Ecstasy (1965). As Heston put it, "I've had the good fortune to play some extraordinary men."
