What was up with Charlton Heston and his seemingly lack of clothes in most of his films? I always figured the PEPLUM genre asked him to do these scenes (in TEN COMMANDMENTS or BEN-HUR...) but Charlton was also seen sans clothes in other films like PLANET OF THE APES, THE OMEGA MAN and SOYLENT GREEN so one can't blame the PEPLUM genre for this. I don't think there's ever been an actor who was seen in the buff as much as he was. If you search google for any Heston nudity you'll find a good number of photos which I won't post in this article. Was it in his contract or he was simply an exhibitionist?
Charlton in JULIUS CAESAR (1950); one of his first film roles and when we see him for the first time in that film he's nearly naked. The trend would continue in almost all his films.
