Here are two pages from a 1998 book, Charlton Heston's Hollywood: 50 Years in American Film, written by Charlton Heston and Jean-Pierre Isbouts. They deal with the movie Soylent Green, released in 1973. It starred Heston, Edward G. Robinson (referred to as Eddie by CH,) Leigh Taylor-Young and Chuck Connors. The italicized portions are written by CH, the non-italicized portions by his co-author.

How many of you have seen this movie?

What did you think about it?  I didn't care for it at all.  smiley_shutup

I love this movie, but I'm a big science fiction fan especially post-apocalyptic.  The cast was great, and Chuck is an awesome bad guy in this one.  Leigh Taylor-Young is very beautiful as the "furniture", and Heston does his part to overact as usual.  

Faith Quabius, Chuck's then girlfriend and future wife, has a non-speaking role as one of the attendants when Edward G. Robinson decides to make his exit through euthanasia.

Ya' know TVFan, I did not like this movie at all!  Maybe I need to watch it again.  It's been about 10 years since I have see it.

Although I do agree with you on the furniture & the cast, I just didn't care for it.  🙁

I remember the title but not the movie. I'll have to watch for it and refresh myself.

I was going to say everyone remembers Heston's famous line, but then I realized that it might still be a Spoiler if someone isn't familiar with the movie.  You'll know it when you hear it, though. 😀

I ran across this movie last night on Turner Classic Movies.  I started watching it because I caught a glimpse of Chuck.  I had never seen it before.

The movie lighting was bad and I saw Chuck from the back.....but you can always recognize Chuck by the way he stands and moves.  His characteristics.

It was not one of my favorite Chuck movies but I watched it anyway just to see my wonderful Chuck.

I think he was better in the Proud and the Damned. Even the scene where he is being hanged he is professing his love for Mila with those blue eyes.     sigh
