My mom went to the walk-in theater around 1956 or 1957 and saw "Moses" on the big screen and she thought it was a wonderful movie.

They run it every Easter on channel 26 here in the states.

I rememer him best though playing "blue eyes" on "planet of the apes."

Hi Janice ~~ Another old star gone from this earth. Charlton Heston
was a good actor and we are losing them too often. Glad you enjoyed the
bulls**t and brilliance story. It was a clever plan from that poodle.
Take care, Love, Merle.

Hi Merle,

*Sigh* yes we are unfortunately.

That was one clever poole, and it gave me a good chuckle.

Take care,
Lady Jan~
