Since it’s the Easter Holiday for many people I thought I’d share this photo of Charlton Heston when he portrayed Moses. (I put the photo on Facebook but thought it deserved to be here also. The movie was on last night)

I saw and (barely) met Mr. Heston at an autograph show when I lived out in California. 

The shows were held at a Holiday Inn not far from Universal Studios. Anyway, at the time I was regularly helping Jonathan Harris (Lost in Space) and so when I learned Mr. Heston would be there signing I was a little down that I wouldn’t be able to stand in his horrendous line to obtain his autograph.  I did go and ask the people helping him if he would sign a photo if I sent it to him and they told me he would and gave me his managers address to send it to. As you can see, indeed, he did sign it for me!

A funny thing happened at the Holiday Inn where the show was.  I was outside in back of the hotel going to another area where dealers sold memorabilia .  Out of the corner of my eye I caught a movement and looked across the pool only to see Mr Heston walking there.. and well.. I have to admit this… it looked as if he was walking on the pool water!..heh..When the time came I had no choice of the many photo’s of him but to get this one !  And my first memory of seeing him will always remain that of Charlton Heston walking on water!
