Charlton Heston: In Tombstone
Like many others in the ensemble cast of Tombstone, Charlton Heston had only a few scenes as legendary rancher Henry Hooker. His scenes were among the first filmed during production and were filmed when Writer Kevin Jarre was still working as the film's director. Earlier drafts of the script had Hooker playing a larger part in the film.

It is probable that much of Heston's scenes were left on the cutting room floor when Director George Cosmatos edited the film. Heston was left with little more than a cameo, playing a hardened rancher who is independent of the conflict. His casting gives his character stature with the larger-than-life figures of Wyatt Earp and Curly Bill Brocius.
