Charlton Heston and Barbara Auffret

This photo was taken at the opening of Mr. Heston's documentary film "The Bible", a 3 part series. In the above photo Mr. Heston received an award (which you can partly see in his hand) presented by The Episcopal Church in Pacific Palisades, California. I was happy to be in attendance and truly enjoyed the film. 

A TRIBUTE TO A HERO

He was an American Academy Award–winning actor of film, theater and television. Heston is known for having played heroic roles, such as Moses in The Ten Commandments, Colonel George Taylor in Planet of the Apes and Judah Ben-Hur in Ben-Hur, the role for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor. In the 1950s and 1960s he was one of a handful of Hollywood actors to speak openly against racism and was an active supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. Initially a liberal Democrat, he later supported conservative politics and was president of the National Rifle Association from 1998 to 2003.
