According to Gore Vidal , as recounted in The Celluloid Closet , one of the script elements he was brought in to re-write for Ben-Hur was the relationship between Messalah and Ben-Hur.
Director William Wyler was concerned that two men who had been close friends as youths would not simply hate one another as a result of disagreeing over politics.
Thus, Vidal devised a thinly veiled subtext suggesting the Messalah and Ben-Hur had been lovers as teenagers, and their fighting was a result of Ben-Hur spurning Messalah.
Wyler was initially hesitant to implement the subtext, but agreed on the conditions that no direct reference ever be made to the characters' sexuality in the script, that Vidal personally discuss the idea with Stephen Boyd , and not mention the subtext to Heston who, Wyler feared, would panic at the idea.
After Vidal admitted to adding the homosexual subtext in public, Heston denied the claim, going so far as to suggest Vidal had little input into the final script, and his lack of screen credit was a result of his being fired for trying to add gay innuendo.
Vidal rebutted by citing passages from Heston's autobiography, where the actor admitted that Vidal had authored much of the final shooting script.

Initially turned down the role of Steve Leech in The Big Country because he didn't think the role was big enough after the success he had with The Ten Commandments , but his agent convinced him to take the part on the grounds that it would be worth it for his career to work with both Gregory Peck , who was still a bigger star than Heston at the time, and director William Wyler.

Britannica Quiz. It's been my experience that it makes them unhappy, but that's not the same thing. In any event, they often attend those undertakings where I come to a violent end even more enthusiastically than they do those where I survive.
There may be a message for me somewhere there. It is essential that gun owners unite in an active, growing force capable of flexing great muscle as the next millennium commences.
Most people in the film community don't really understand what being politically active means.
They think it is just doing interviews. I'm content that the Hollywood left thinks being a political activist means riding Air Force One and hanging out with the President.
Warren Beatty is non-typical of Hollywood liberals. He thinks [ Bill Clinton ] is an idiot. It is not widely known that one of the finest gun collections on the West Coast is Steven Spielberg 's.
He shoots, but very privately. God knows, [ John Wayne ] couldn't play a first-century Roman! In recent years, anyone in the government, certainly anyone in the FBI or the CIA, or recently, in again, [ Clint Eastwood ]'s film, In the Line of Fire , the main bad guy is the chief advisor to the president.
This is a black comedy. We're holding this up to ridicule". There's no worse thing you can accuse a cool person of being than not getting a joke.
The big studio era is from the coming of sound until , until I came in I came in at a crux in film, which was the end of the studio era and the rise of filmmaking.
You can spend a lifetime, and, if you're honest with yourself, never once was your work perfect. But when I told an audience last year that white pride is just as valid as black pride or red pride or anyone else's pride, they called me a racist.
I've worked with brilliantly talented homosexuals all my life. But when I told an audience that gay rights should extend no further than your rights or my rights, I was called a homophobe.
But during a speech, when I drew an analogy between singling out innocent Jews and singling out innocent gun owners, I was called an anti-Semite.
Everyone I know knows I would never raise a closed fist against my country. People don't perceive me as a shy man. But I am.
I am thought of mostly in terms of the parts I play. I am seen as a forbidding authority figure. I only wish I were as indomitable as everyone thinks.
I find my blood pressure rising when [ Bill Clinton ]'s cultural shock troops participate in homosexual rights fund raisers but boycott gun rights fund raisers - and then claim it's time to place homosexual men in tents with Boy Scouts and suggest that sperm-donor babies born into lesbian relationships are somehow better served.
Mainstream America is depending on you - counting on you - to draw your sword and fight for them.
These people have precious little time or resources to battle misguided Cinderella attitudes, the fringe propaganda of the homosexual coalition, the feminists who preach that it's a divine duty for women to hate men, blacks who raise a militant fist with one hand, while they seek preference with the other.
The Constitution was handed down to guide us by a bunch of those wise old, dead, white guys who invented this country.
It's true - they were white guys. So were most of the guys who died in [ Abraham Lincoln ]'s name, opposing slavery in the s.
So, why should I be ashamed of white guys? Why is Hispanic pride or black pride a good thing, while white pride conjures up shaved heads and white hoods?
People in the film community think being politically active means getting on Air Force One and going to dinner at the White House.
I've scorned a few liberals in this town, and I get a kick out of that. In the beginning an actor impresses us with his looks, later his voice enchants us.
Over the years, his performances enthrall us. But in the end, it is simply what he is. In Hollywood there are more gun owners in the closet than homosexuals.
Somewhere in the busy pipeline of public funding is sure to be a demand from a disabled lesbian on welfare that the Metropolitan Opera stage her rap version of "Carmen" as translated into Ebonics.
I didn't change. The Democratic Party slid to the Left from right under me. And we sure, Lord, don't trust you with our guns. I'm pissed off when Indians say they're Native Americans!
I'm a Native American, for chrisakes! Too many gun owners think we've wandered to some fringe of American life and left them behind.
Jackson was one of my favorite Presidents. One mean son of a bitch. I wanted to prepare a few words for you now, because when the time comes, I may not be able to.
I've lived my whole life on the stage and screen before you. I've found purpose and meaning in your response. For an actor there's no greater loss than the loss of his audience.
If you see a little less spring in my step, if your name fails to leap to my lips, you'll know why. I'm neither giving up nor giving in.
I believe I'm still the fighter that Dr. Kennedy ] and Ronald Reagan knew, but it's a fight I must someday call a draw. I must reconcile courage and surrender in equal measure.
Please feel no sympathy for me. I don't. I just may be a little less accessible to you, despite my wishes.
I also want you to know that I'm grateful beyond measure. My life has been blessed with good fortune.
I'm grateful that I was born in America, that cradle of freedom and opportunity, where a kid from the Michigan Northwoods can work hard and make something of his life.
I'm grateful for the gift of the greatest words ever written, that let me share with you the infinite scope of the human experience.
As an actor, I'm thankful that I've lived not one life, but many. Above all, I'm proud of my family They're my biggest fans, my toughest critics and my proudest achievement.
Through them, I can touch immortality. Finally, I'm confident about the future of America. I believe in you. I know that the future of our country, our culture and our children is in good hands.
I know you will continue to meet adversity with strength and resilience, as our ancestors did, and come through with flying colors - the ones on Old Glory.
William Shakespeare , at the end of his career, wrote his farewell through the words of Prospero, in "The Tempest".
It ends like this: "Be cheerful, sir. Our revels now are ended. These our actors, as I foretold you, were all spirits and are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, the cloud-cap'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, the solemn temples, the great globe itself, yea all which it inherit, shall dissolve and, like this insubstantial pageant faded, leave not a rack behind.
We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep". Thank you, and God bless you, everyone.
I have never felt I was being ill-treated by the press - ill-treated by Barbra Streisand , maybe. But Ms.
Streisand I suggest is inadequately educated on the Constitution of the United States. From our fight scene in The Big Country to his willingness to stand up for what he believed personally, Gregory Peck faced life's challenges with great vigor and courage.
Vote George W. Everything else is a distant and forgettable second place. This is the most important election since the Civil War.
Al Gore , if elected, would have the power to hammer your gun rights right into oblivion. Instead of fighting redcoats, we are now fighting blue blood elitists.
Somebody once approached Kirk Douglas and said they had enjoyed his performance in Ben-Hur So he said, 'That wasn't me, that was another fellow.
In any other time or place you'd be looking for a lynching mob. The right, put simply, shall not be infringed.
I have spent my life in service to these two sacred sets of work - the gift of human passion in William Shakespeare and the gift of human freedom enshrined in the American bill of human rights.
Tony Blair can have his bodyguards and the police are all allowed to defend themselves, then so should the people.
Mind you, she's not a bitch. She's a warm lady, truly; she's just more star than pro. Ava showed up for a late call, did one shot with the usual incredible delay in coming to the set , and then walked off just before lunch when some Chinese extra took a still of her.
She came back after a painful three-hour lunch break only to walk off, for the same reason. However, I did not find her enormously warming and there was no great personal stirring between us as friends.
I found him a somewhat erratic personality and an occasional pain in the posterior. But we certainly never feuded.
I have lived such a wonderful life! I've lived enough for two people. I like playing great men. They're more interesting than the rest of us.
I could do it better now. I've almost never been content with what I've done in any film. My heart's desire would be to do them all over again - and not do a half dozen of them at all.
Why does Cary Grant get all those pictures set entirely in penthouses? God knows I've exercised that right. But maybe it's good if God gives you something to think about every so often.
Whatever happens happens. You take it in stride if you can. You don't have many options there. A lot of men in positions of authority are difficult people, because they're right, and they know they're right.
Orson [Welles] insists he hates acting but of course he is a very good actor and is really able to communicate with actors. It's not too often that you learn about acting from directors because that isn't what they do.
They sometimes make you act better, but to really understand the process is a different thing. Orson really understood the process.
I remember we were looking at dailies one day and he leaned over and said, 'You know, Chuck, you have to work on your tenor range.
Those of us with great bass voices love to rumble along in them. The tenor range is a knife edge; the bass is a velvet hammer.
You have to use them both'. That was very useful. I'd never thought of it before. My face seems to be acceptable in almost any period except the 20th century.
We shot on the top of Mount Sinai, the real Mount Sinai, and at the foot of the mountain. We were staying at the monastery of St.
Catherine's, which is at the base of the mountain, and it's a walled monastery, because of course in ancient times it was constantly at risk.
I was sitting at dinner one night with Mr. DeMille and the chief abbot of the monastery. And DeMille was talking about his delight in being able to shoot on the ground where these things had happened, as was I.
And they were discussing who might do the voice of God. With a temerity that was a rather daring thing for a young actor to do, I saw an opportunity, and I said, "You know, Mr.
DeMille, it seems to me that any man hears the voice of God from inside himself. And I would like to be the voice of God. And so [DeMille] said okay.
In the movie, you only hear the voice of God twice - first at the burning bush, and again when he receives the Ten Commandments.
