Review

This documentary video, part of The Hollywood Collection, features the life and work of actor and political conservative Charlton Heston. After growing up in a rural part of Michigan, Heston migrated to the urban landscape of Chicago to attend a high school for the dramatic arts. He attended Northwestern University, where his talent and passion for acting increased with his participation in school theater productions. Then he moved onto the Broadway stage and eventually to the movie soundstages in Hollywood. Heston, known best for his epic film roles as such biblical characters as Moses in Cecil B. De Mille s The Ten Commandments and as the title character in William Wyler s Oscar-winning production of Ben-Hur, speaks openly in this video about his career, family, and his politics. This video also shows movie footage, including a rare 1942 student film of a young Heston. There are also interviews with family, co-workers, and friends, including Gregory Peck. --Cecilia Cygnar, All Movie Guide

...For All Seasons does provide a brisk, if hardly thorough, overview of Heston's life and career in just over 45 minutes. Through interviews with co-stars like Peck and Carroll Baker, as well as Heston's own wife and daughter and assorted commentators, Feldman and Winter run through Heston's life from his childhood in rural Michigan to his late-life projects and activism. Heston himself is interviewed and provides only occasional commentary on his films and philosophies, proving himself to be as amicable and warm a speaker as one would expect from the man who was Moses.

For All Seasons is made for casual viewing on cable on a Sunday afternoon; this is a fine introduction for casual fans or those intrigued by Heston's life in the wake of his passing, but anyone expecting anything more in-depth will have to look elsewhere. --DVDVerdict.com

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful tribute to one of my favorite actors.... April 18, 2008
Format:DVD
The recent passing of Charlton Heston this April is a sincere loss for Hollywood. The actor took on characters larger than life and somehow made them accessible to a generation of moviegoers. Moses, Michaelangelo, Andrew Jackson, El Cid, Ben Hur---Heston brought these historical icons to life physically and intellectually--and spoke to the hero in all of us.

Although rather short, this is a fine disc in which to savor Heston's greatest and most unforgettable moments on the screen. All the classics are included here as well as the actor's personal favorite, Tom Gries' "Will Penny," (1968). For fans of the actor, or if you wish to learn more about Hollywood's "greatest generation," this DVD is a celebration of an actor who gave the Hollywood epic stature, fire, and guts.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but short October 8, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Since I've been a fan of Charlton Heston's ever since I was a stary eyed high school student who couldn't believe her good luck when he answered my fan letter in connection with his performance in The President's Lady, I do like this DVD.
It's a bit short and could include some examples of his own interviews as well as words from his son Fray Heston.
In other words, more of the same would be great.

Format:DVD
Janson Media's "Hollywood Collection" series now includes a DVD tribute to Charlton Heston, the star of over sixty movies. Charlton Heston For All Seasons pays homage to Heston's many roles, from king to slave and hero to villain, in classic Hollywood films such as "Moses", "Ben-Hur", "El Cid" and "Michelangelo. Also revealed is the aspect of his personality that led him to speak out on the issues he believed in, regardless of their controversy. Highlights from some of Heston's most well-known movies intersperse this respectful homage, enhanced with extra features including a photo gallery, an interview with Gene Feldman, and a "meet the producers" segment. 85 min., color with some black-and-white footage of classic films.
