The Actors Life: Journals 1956-1976

by Charlton Heston, edited by Hollis Alpert. Dutton, $12.95. Probably the most interesting aspect of these journals, at least for the nontheatrical reader, is their revelation of the length of time, the miles of travel, and the intricate negotiations required to get any film project before the cameras. One can only marvel at the actor’s patience. One can also enjoy his flashes of humor and his quick, kindly sketches of various colleagues. Illustrations.
