A shame you didn't get to meet Chuck, but meeting the other two must have been great. I'm a big admirer of Jack Lemmon.

Here is a BBC News report on Chuck's stage play 'Love Letters' which he did with Lydia.

Heston stages West End comeback


Hollywood legend Charlton Heston is back on the London stage in a revival of a play he originally toured with two years ago. The 75-year-old is starring in AR Gurney's poignant Love Letters with his wife of 56 years, Lydia.

The veteran couple sit throughout the play which is about two lovers' lifelong correspondence. They have played the roles before in US productions and on a regional tour of the UK in 1997. Heston last appeared in London at the Queen's Theatre in The Caine Mutiny Court Martial in 1985.

Heston says Love Letters is funny and poignant. "It's a very unusual piece. It's a two-hander," says Heston.

"It consists of two people - a man and a woman - sitting side by side at a desk, reading letters they have written to each other starting when they're eight years old until they're in their 60s. "I know of few pieces that are as funny as this is and at the same time as heartbreaking, it's a marvellous piece of work."

Heston has played his role opposite other actresses in the past, but - unsurprisingly - he says his wife Lydia is the best. "She was born for it," he adds.

I have found a nice report-*** interview with Chuck on his role as Thomas More in A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS, and his views on the theatre and plays ingeneral. I tried to copy the content but it does not help. You may enjoy reading this at http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=2 ... 99,5420580
