The Charlton Heston AWARD for acting talent has found a suitable recipient for its inaugural gong - CHARLTON HESTON himself.

The AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE (AFI) presented the 78-year-old OSCAR winner with the new award at his Los Angeles home on Tuesday (23SEP03).

AFI board chairman HOWARD STRINGER says, "For decades, he has been a major presence in movies and television around the world.

"His strong spirit of commitment to AFI lives on through this honour."

The gong will be handed out periodically in the future to other suitable recipients.
