CHARLTON HESTON’s NAZI SECRET
CHARLTON HESTON’s last film - banned in the United States! WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT VIDEO
Movie legend Heston, a famous liberal who marched on Washington with Dr. Martin Luther King later angered many of Tinsel Town’s left by turning conservative later in life, and becoming an ardent supporter of the NRA.
Before succumbing to the ravages of Alzheimer’s in 2008, Heston made one last film “My Father, Rua Alguem 5555”, directed by Egidio Eronico which had limited film fest release in 2003.
According to the IMDB, the plot revolves around a man (Thomas Kretschmann)) who grew up as an orphan who finally gets to meet his father –the psychopathic surgeon Dr. Josef Mengele (Heston), who performed genetic experiments on Auschwitz concentration camp victims during WWII.
Showbiz bible Variety said in a 2004 review: “While Heston’s perf is neither as weirdly convincing as Gregory Peck’s Josef Mengele in “The Boys From Brazil” … he puts it over with workmanlike precision, using a somewhat sibilant and consistent German accent, and sells his character’s casual monstrosity and drenched-in-denial logic.”
It has not been shown theatrically nor released on home video in the U.S.
