Heston's hidden movie masterpiece
Charlton Heston deserves all the accolades he's getting as one of Hollywood's greatest actors. But as yet I've seen no mention of the stunning performance he delivered as Thomas More in a televised version of A Man for All Seasons that he not only starred in but directed.
I would have thought it impossible to match Paul Scofield's performance in the (justifiably) famous movie, but Heston did it. So far as I can tell, I'm the world's only known viewer of this gem.
