Radio review - Lux - "Viva Zapata" (1952) **
A chance to compare the acting talents of Charlton Heston and Marlon Brando, with Chuckles taking over the role as the famous Mexican revolutionary. Who do you think would be better? It's a normal Heston performance, all teeth and reticence. Jean Peters repeats her film performance. The story is alright - I'm sure it was a big deal at the time but there's been a few other tales like this.
