  • Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Charlton Heston vintage movie posters from his critically acclaimed catalog of timeless cinematic performances.

    Charlton Heston, original name John Charles Carter, is an American actor who was known for his well-defined features, compelling speaking voice and for his various roles as historical figures and popular literary characters.

    Heston moved to New York City in 1946, and he made his Broadway debut in Antony and Cleopatra (1947). Soon, he acquired roles in live television productions and first showed up in a Hollywood film starring in William Dieterle’s Dark City (1950). Although the actor was still relatively unfamiliar, his performance impressed director Cecil B. DeMille who cast him as the circus manager in The Greatest Show on Earth (1952). The film achieved the Oscar win for Best Picture, and Heston received good notices for his performance. He later starred as U.S. President Andrew Jackson in The President’s Lady (1953), the first of numerous historical roles he would undertake.

    In 1956 Heston played arguably the biggest role of his Hollywood career, that of Moses in DeMille’s The Ten Commandments. Solidified as a major star, Heston then worked for several other big directors, including Orson Welles in Touch of Evil (1958) and William Wyler in Ben-Hur (1959). Ben-Hur won 11 Academy Awards, including a Best Actor award for Heston; the film cemented his position as the premier historical character actor in Hollywood. 

    In 1968 Charlton Heston was featured in the western Will Penny, a role that he counted among his most-liked, and in Planet of the Apes, the first in a series of science-fiction films for the actor. 

    The classic actor was also associated in politics, both in and out of Hollywood. He was the president of the Screen Actors Guild from 1966 to 1971¬†and was later the chairman of the American Film Institute (1973‚Äď1983). A vocal supporter of gun rights, he worked as president of the National Rifle Association (1998‚Äď2003). Heston also was the receiver of various honors, including the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award (1978) from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2003). In addition, he was chosen as a Kennedy Center honoree in 1997. The icon's numerous books include the autobiography In the Arena (1995).
