Charlton Heston, simply put, is the greatest leading man in film history. The charisma, dignity, grace and strength he conveyed on the silver screen define what it is to be a leading man. Heston has screen presence in biblical proportions, and its appropriate that his prime came about while Hollywood had an obsession with making epics -- the gravitas he embued in his characters made him a perfect fit in Tinsel Town's Golden Era. There has never been anyone else quite like him before or since and there may never be.

Charlton Heston actually played President Andrew Jackson twice in unrelated films, thanks in part to their similar striking features. His first turn as Jackson came in Harry Levin's The President's Lady in 1953 and Anthony Quinn called on him to play Jackson again in the 1958 swashbuckler The Buccaneer.
