Charlton Heston Bio "For All Seasons" Released on DVD
March 13, 2008, Harrington Park, NJ... Janson Media today announced the worldwide release of the DVD, CHARLTON HESTON: FOR ALL SEASONS. The title is the 7th to be released on DVD from the company’s Hollywood Collection, an award-winning archive of 34 movie star biographies and retrospectives produced by Wombat Productions between 1985 and 1999.
After growing up in a rural part of Michigan, Heston migrated to the urban landscape of Chicago to attend a high school for the dramatic arts. He attended Northwestern University, where his talent and passion for acting increased with his participation in school theater productions. Then he moved onto the Broadway stage and eventually to the movie soundstages in Hollywood. He has been king and slave, hero and villain, renowned throughout the movie-going world for the heroic figures he played during his early years in Hollywood.
Heston is best known for his role as Moses in Cecil B. De Mille’s “The Ten Commandments” and as the title character in William Wyler’s Oscar-winning production of “Ben-Hur.” Although he is a private man, Heston has often appeared to be a very public one, willing to speak up on issues he believes in. This documentary film captures, in his own words, Heston’s life as well as highlights of a career that resulted in over 60 motion pictures, including “The Greatest Show On Earth,” “The Big Country,” “Will Penny,” “Soylent Green,” and “Planet of the Apes.”
CHARLTON HESTON: FOR ALL SEASONS provides footage from a rare 1942 student film of a young Heston, as well as interviews with family, co-workers, and friends, including Gregory Peck. It is now available for all television, DVD, and new media markets worldwide exclusively through Janson Media. The DVD also includes a Charlton Heston photo gallery and trailers of other Hollywood Collection DVDs.
