    Midway.

    Speaking of which, tomorrow marks the 80th anniversary of the start of the battle.

    I thought was just another reaction to a Second Amendment challenge.

    Legend… great novel.
     
  7. F'n-A! Touch of Evil (1958)! That Charlton Heston was a Mexican. :D
     
  8. Ben Hur - (never liked Planet Of The Apes-as SF, found it as implausible as Children Of Men). Anyway, the reason I love watching it is the way that the deep friendship between Messala and Hur turned bad. Kudos to the late Stephen Boyd as well. I read that Gore Vidal did the writing for the film. Those scenes where they interact-in friendship-and-hostility("the race-it goes on")... Over the years, it had me involved-Heston a wooden actor? No way here.

    Easily The Omega Man for me. Loved it ad a teen and it’s still my favorite apocalyptic sci-fi film.

    I've seen The Ten Commandments a lot, mostly as a kid. I think one of the local stations played it every Easter or something like that.

    The Ten Commandments has always mesmerized me - if I turn it on I can't stop watching it.

    I haven't watched these nearly as much but I gotta mention some peculiar favorites so here goes:
    El Cid
    The Agony And The Ecstasy
    Antony And Cleopatra

    I've watched films with Charlton Heston in them but I've never watched a film because Charlton Heston was in them.

    When I was a young it was "Planet of the Apes", it has been overtaken by "Touch of Evil".

    Definitely 'POTA' for me as well... There's not even a question about it.

    My second most watched Heston film is probably 'Will Penny', unless you can count his glorified cameo in 'Beneath the Planet of the Apes' as a Heston film, then 'Beneath' is my second most watched Heston film.

    Evil ?
    Some folk commented that he didn’t look Mexican enough ( what ever that means)
    Dennis Weaver was a hoot.

    I've never seen the movie in question, but I can say I do *not* think Charlton Heston would make a convincing Hispanic man.

    And for the record, Chuck Connors didn't make a convincing Native American in that 'Geronimo' movie he starred in either... But that's for another thread. :)

    I picked up a copy of 'Mountain Men' while out thrifting... I haven't watched it yet, but it does look like it'll be good.

    Probably Ben Hur. Possibly Planet Of The Apes. I've seen Secret Of The Incas a fair few times too.

    Easily Planet of the Apes. That's the only Heston movie I've seen more than once.
