This stamp features a color portrait based on a photograph taken by the actor's wife, Lydia Clarke Heston. An image of Heston from the 1959 movie Ben-Hur decorates the selvage. Originally shot in black and white, the photograph was later hand-tinted, and shows Heston in his costume from the monumental chariot racing scene, one of the most famous action sequences ever filmed.
The Charlton Heston stamp will be issued as a Forever® stamp.
