Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[after seeing "Will Penny"]: Charlton Heston, for the first time ever, looks frail, frightened and human. Tom Gries found the great actor hidden in Charlton Heston.


All his feature film credits were for movies directed by Lindsay Anderson, although he has worked on dozens of other projects which either never came to fruition or were not credited to him. See more »
