Charlton Heston

Though Heston is best known for his film work, he also made time to return to the stage, which he described as "renewing his passport." After World War II, he made his Broadway debut in "Antony and Cleopatra" in Katharine Cornell's company and appeared in "Leaf and Bough" and "Design for a Stained Glass Window" before Hollywood beckoned. In the 1970s and '80s, he frequently appeared at the Ahmanson Theater in "A Man for All Seasons," "The Crucible," "Long Day's Journey Into Night" with Deborah Kerr, "Macbeth" with Vanessa Redgrave, "Detective Story" and "Crucifer of Blood." His production of "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial" was performed at the Henry Fonda Theater as well as in London. Return to full obituary
