SUMMER UNDER THE STARS: CHARLTON HESTON
August 30, 2020  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 6:00 a.m. ET

 
The penultimate day of “Summer Under the Stars” is given over to Charlton Heston, whose movies showcased for the next 24 hours include 1959’s epic Ben-Hur (at 4 p.m. ET), Orson Welles’ moody 1958 film noir drama Touch of Evil (8 p.m. ET), and two sci-fi cult favorites, 1968’s Planet of the Apes (12:15 a.m. ET, pictured) and 1973’s Soylent Green (2:15 a.m. ET). The coveted prime-time leadoff spot at 8 p.m. ET, though, is reserved for 1966’s Khartoum, which is not my favorite. For the record, my favorite Khartoum is The Simpsoms.
