"The recent passing of Charlton Heston this April is a sincere loss for Hollywood. The actor took on characters larger than life and somehow made them accessible to a generation of moviegoers. Moses, Michaelangelo, Andrew Jackson, El Cid, Ben Hur---Heston brought these historical icons to life physically and intellectually--and spoke to the hero in all of us.
Although rather short, this is a fine disc in which to savor Heston's greatest and most unforgettable moments on the screen. All the classics are included here as well as the actor's personal favorite, Tom Gries' "Will Penny," (1968). For fans of the actor, or if you wish to learn more about Hollywood's "greatest generation," this DVD is a celebration of an actor who gave the Hollywood epic stature, fire, and guts."
