I was sitting at the Doctors waiting PATIENTLY and the movie on TV had Charleton Heston in it and as I hadnt seen it before so I was curious to know the name of the film and when it was made so when I got home I tried to 'Google' it and its been bloody downhill ever since.
Heston wasnt known for his Gladiatorial roles, more the larger than life characters such as El Cid, Ben Hur, Moses etc.
Gladatorial roles were more Kirk Douglas with Spaticus and the Vikings.
The film BTW was called the Alaskan that has been remade since this version.
I stand unequivicably behind everything I say , I just dont ever remember saying it !!
