I had a particularly exhausting day at work yesterday and was looking forward to a relaxing night in and watching a movie. I arrived home, and to my joy, Marc Eliot's book on Charlton Heston had arrived from Amazon, which I had pre-ordered months ago. After a quick shower and an evening meal I settled down to read the book and reached chapter 18 before going to bed. It's a great read, but I was quite alarmed that Heston's birthday is incorrectly given as 23 October 1923!

Also, as I suspected, Heston's early films aren't discussed in any depth, particularly SECRET OF THE INCAS, which is probably given the least space, which irked me. But, apart from that, fans of Heston will really enjoy this latest book on Mr Epic, and Eliot is to be congratulated on a fine effort.

I will give a fuller review when I've finished the book, Thorn.

Wow, are you a heavy reader, James? 18 chapters in one night seems like an awful lot. Are they relatively short?

Have you learned a lot of new information with the help of the book?

Yes Thorn, 18 chapters in one go was pushing it, but it was such a good read that I literally didn't want to put it down. The size of the chapters are about average, I would say.

There are a few things that I didn't know, but for the most part I knew most of the stuff in the book, but that's because I have amassed an enormous amount of stuff on Heston and his movies over the years.

One thing that stuck in my mind in the early chapters was the deep hostility Heston's mother had for her first husband, and how she resented Chuck contacting his real father later on. She came across as some sort of nasty and bitter control freak.

I highly recommend the book, Thorn, but as I stated before, that typo giving the incorrect date of Heston's birth is unforgiveable.

Its a shame that some of our regulars don't participate anymore, as well, Thorn.

Ron Haydock, the editor of "Fantastic Monsters" magazine, cornered Nicole Maurey at a press gathering and asked her if she found co-starring with the Triffid monsters any different than co-starring with Bing Crosby, Rex Harrison, Alec Guinness, and Charlton Heston, as she had in previous films.
"Yes," she replied with a wink.
"Monsters have more arms."

I rarely go on the IMDb now, but decided to check out the SECRET OF THE INCAS page to see if there was any new reviews. I came across this on the quotes section:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047464/tri ... =tt_trv_qu


Secret of the Incas (1954)
Quotes

Miss Morris: Most men don't enjoy taking money from women.

Harry Steele: That's the best kind. It's the hardest to get and always smells so good.


Harry Steele: Stay down or I'll kick your head right out the window.


Harry Steele: I've seen so many women cry it doesn't impress me anymore.


[first lines]

Miss Morris: Do all the railways in Peru have to go this fast?

Harry Steele: We're trying to get you back to Cusco in time to catch your plane. Don't worry, we've never lost a tourist yet.


Miss Morris: It's been very enjoyable. I've enjoyed the trip.

Harry Steele: You're wondering how you're going to pay me without hurting my feelings, Miss Morris, forget it. Just, uh, take out your roll and start counting.

Miss Morris: You're not exactly timid, are you?

Harry Steele: Not about money. Money sings and I love music.


Harry Steele: Any private planes due in?

Charlie: No. You always ask if any private planes is due in and the answer is always no.

Harry Steele: Well, someday the answer will be yes.

Charlie: Then what? Supposing a private plane does come in?

Harry Steele: Just between you and me, I'll steal it.


Harry Steele: Where did Morgan say he'd meet me?

Charlie: The old grotto. Better stay away from that crud.

Harry Steele: I like being around Morgan. Makes me feel honest.


Elena Antonescu: Mr. Steele, Harry Steele?

Young Man at Bar: Well, does the name really matter?

Harry Steele: Yes, because my name is Steele, and I'm bigger than you are.


Miss Morris: [to Harry Steele] For a tall man, you're the smallest man I ever met.


Harry Steele: [to Miss Morris] A girl like you, you're made for somebody like me, and you know it.


Can anybody spot the obvious mistakes?
