Describing a career that spans half a century, one of America's favorite actors tells of his childhood shyness, personal insecurities, early steps to Broadway and television, and behind-the-scenes accounts of his great epic films. Heston's memoir traces an amazingly prolific and durable career from his starring roles in historical epics of the 1950s and 1960s (The Ten Commandments, Ben Hur) through disaster films of the 1970s (Earthquake) and into recent years spent largely as a stage actor and in TV character roles. Throughout he is unusually generous to colleagues, totally devoted to his family, and surprisingly restrained in offering his well-publicized conservative political views. This memoir of a popular actor and his long career is recommended for most collections. Thomas Wiener, Editor, "Satelite DIRECT".
