TCM salutes Charlton Heston
Get to know the works of a legend we've recently lost.
This Friday, April 11, Turner Classic Movies pays homage to the late Charlton Heston with a movie marathon and more.
The 15-hour marathon of memorable Heston performances, includes his Oscar-winning role in "Ben-Hur" (1959). Also featured will be two opportunities to watch an in-depth conversation between Heston and TCM host Robert Osborne in the TCM original special Private Screenings: Charlton Heston.
"Charlton Heston was a towering man both in person and on screen," said Osborne. "He was also one of the nicest, most courteous gentlemen I ever met. He will forever stand tall among those rare few we know as genuine Movie Stars."
