I thought we had a thread here somewhere about the Heston Newsletter or a post about it, but I can't really remember.
Here's one on sale on eBay; it was written at the time of his role in The Hawaiians (so, about 1970):

There's also a b&w still with it; you can actually read the newsletter in this larger pic:

(or, just go to the eBay site and use the magnifier function to read it -- while it's still for sale)

I had no real knowledge about these either, except a vague recollection about some post in the past that mentioned these, maybe by someone like James Byrne. But, I could be thinking of some other site or just a passage in one of Heston's old books. So, no, I have no idea how many of these were published - I'd have to try to research it. It is pretty interesting to me; I wouldn't mind having one of these; these don't seem to be too expensive. I'm just a little leery about possibly getting bamboozled on the internet. I have no reason to think these are fake or doctored, but you never know these days... :(

EDIT: a quick google search uncovered one bit of information here: http://collections.oscars.org/link/papers/173
There, it reads:
Quote:
an entire run of the Charlton Heston Newsletter (1956-1971), written by Heston

So, that appears to answer the question of a time period (1956-1971); but, how many? One a Year? A couple a year? More?

That link, btw, also has some interesting info on Heston papers in a library...

Yes, I remember those Heston newsletters when I was a kid. Heston quit writing them in 1971 because he couldn't do them justice. Chuck's philosophy was if a things worth doing, its worth doing well, and he didn't have enough time to write them to his high standards. I was always disappointed that he began writing them, like his journals, after he made SECRET OF THE INCAS and THE NAKED JUNGLE.

Wow, he kept writing them for a long time, during some of his most exciting years as an actor.
