Charlton Heston Dies at Age 84
Charlton Heston's passing away is very sad news. Heston starred in so many films that it's impossible to list them all, and I enjoyed rather a lot of them. While Heston is best remembered by science fiction fans for his roles in The Omega Man, Planet of the Apes, and Soylent Green, my fondest memories of him are from The Ten Commandments where he played Moses, and The Three Musketeers in which he played Cardinal Richelieu. And, of course, who can forget Khartoum and Ben-Hur?
Film and acting have lost one of the elder statesmen of their industries, and the Hollywood industry will be a dimmer light without him.
Farewell, Charlton Heston. We will miss you.
