Charlton Heston

ROBERT BERKVIST at The New York Times: Charlton Heston, who appeared in some 100 films in his 60-year acting career but who is remembered chiefly for his monumental, jut-jawed portrayals of Moses, Ben-Hur and Michelangelo, died Saturday night at his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. He was 84.

I am no fan of his leadership of the NRA or the political convictions of his later years, but can't help missing the old curmudgeon. I feel like watching Planet of the Apes and Soylent Green.
