The following memory is from a letter that I received from Academy Award winning actor Charlton Heston. Heston appeared with Pleasence in the western classic WILL PENNY, which he considers one of the best, if not the best, role he ever undertook. Very special thanks to Mr. Heston for paying tribute to the "Man With The Hypnotic Eye."
Dear Mr. Weedman:
Thanks for your letter and for asking me to comment on my experience working with Donald Pleasence:
I found him to be a hypnotic performer and a wonderful gentleman as well. His contribution to WILL PENNY was crucial. It would not have been the same film without his remarkable presence.
My best wishes to you and all good luck in all that you do.
