Charlton Heston interviews, photos and personal experiences in his own words: "Being able to review your work is one of the definitive. characteristics of film for an actor and a director, too. In the theatre, you can't see what you have done. For actors, this is dearly impossible. But even as a director, what you do exists only in time, and that day's rehearsal can never be seen again. You remember it, but...you can't see it!. In a film, you can see your work, best in the raw dailies. If you wait for the finished film as many actors do, because looking at dailies can be a painful experience you can only see the-best that can be done with what you did on a given day you see what the director and the editor have made with the shots you did. That's not useful. From my first film; I've been looking at dailies. It's one of the most valuable learning experiences I've had working in film."
