Charlton Heston: Touch of an Accent

Orson Welles's 1958 film noir "Touch of Evil" is rightfully considered a classic, but only the most dedicated fans don't cringe when Charlton "Planet of the Apes" Heston declaims his way through his lines in the role of a Mexican drug-enforcement official. His miscasting is even the butt of a joke in Tim Burton's "Ed Wood," where Welles complains, "Tell me about it. I'm supposed to direct a thriller for Universal. They want Charlton Heston to play a Mexican!" (Universal Pictures/Getty Images/LIFE.com)
