I have just read the sad news about Charlton Heston who died on Saturday night at the age of 84.

He will always be remembered for 2 film roles, which he did rather well (although very hollywodish) Moses and Ben Hur. One can never forget the sight of Moses with his hair and beard shining in the light coming off the holy mountain. Priceless. RIP!

Yes I agree, he was a distinctive actor, who made several great roles his own. I particularly liked The Omega Man, but films like Ben Hur are still very watchable.

He was of course as we all now know, a leading light for the NRA of America, not something I particularly share a cause with, but I guess each to their own.

He was a great actor, often under used in my opinion. Brliiant in Planet of the Apes. And Solent Green.
