"Soylent Green" (1973) One of those so-bad-it's-great films. In this loony but popular thriller set in the future, Heston's stalwart Det. Thorn discovers a gruesome fact behind a mysterious synthetic food -- "Soylent Green is people!" The film also marks the final screen appearance of legend Edward G. Robinson, and Heston has a few hot-and-heavy scenes with nubile Leigh Taylor-Young. It's certainly not Heston's finest hour, but you'll be entertained.
