I just found out that Charlton Heston passed away at age 84.  It is a shame.  He was in a lot of good movies.

What?  Charlton Heston die?  Now I really has a sad!  Oh, chuck... What a grand actor.  Do you have any idea when Chuck passed away?  You, know, I should probably check Wikipedia....  that's the ticket.  poor Chuck...

edit-  When I opened up Yahoo... There he was staring me back from yahoo's top left prominant article spot.  Here's a link for Chuck's obit:   http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080406/ap_on_en_mo/obit_heston   So long Chuck heston, You were beloved throughout the world... Ah, well...

Oh, yeah!... 

Man, I should have voted for Omega Man!   


  I don't even have a vid of that movie, but I always found it haunting and he gave his life in the end for the survival of the group he had become attached to during the course of the movie.  I was hoping the old Omega Man movie would surface on AMC or Spike channel when the new remakes came out recently... you know, the cheap version and, also, the "bells and whistles" version( The one with Will Smith in it) of I Am Legend.  I didn't even know there was a novel floating around that Omega Man was based off of for the movie.  So I was grateful for the Will Smith remake because in the extras, they get into the novel and talk of the author.  So, I must venture forth to find a copy of Omega Man and a copy of the old, dusty novel for whence the movie came forth.  It's on my mental "to Do" list at least.       wink

Here's another link of Chuck Heston's death from a dif source:   http://www.latimes.com/la-me-heston6apr06,0,3675317.story

Believe shes thinking of Ricardo Montalban, better known as 'Khaaaaaaan', and was also in 'Escape from planet of the Apes.

Two of the best lines in movie history from the only two Heston movies I liked.

1. You Maniacs. You blew it up!

2. It's people!

I'll always remember him as the gun-toting redneck NRA President.

My favourite of his films is Planet of the Apes, of course.

The Omega Man is the worst movie I have ever seen. It's so bad it surpasses even being funny bad. Charlton Heston was a scumbag anyways...

Heston was a great man and a champion of American civil rights.  He picketed segregation and marched with Martin Luther King before it was cool.  In his halcyon days, he actively opposed racism in business and government and, as most of us know, spoke out against government infringements on the Second Amendment.  His cold, dead hands have left big shoes to fill...so to speak.

I voted PotA.

The best way to honor Heston is to randomly yell out his most famous lines.

I wish I could come up with a yelling quote, but alas it's been too long since I last saw the movie I voted for: Ben Hur.

He was good in Wayne's World too.

I heard the news that Charlton Heston died.  He was a very accomplished actor of his time.  I enjoyed a lot of his movies.  My favorites being Planet of the Apes, The Omega Man, Earthquake, and Soylent Green. 

May be rest in peace.  He will be missed.

"GET YOUR STINKING HANDS OFF ME, YOU DAMN DIRTY APE!"

One of the best lines ever uttered in a film.  BTW DogDoo8, HypnoBrecky is correct.  Charleton Heston was in The Omega Man; it wasn't Ricardo Montalban & his "fine corinthian leather"...

RIP Chuck.

Ah, yes he was quite scantily clad... I forgot about the clothing...  funny... Chuck could wear next to nothing and still have the dignity emoted of a fine Shakespearean actor...  God rest ya dear ole' Chuck...  most beloved thespean...sigh...  I truly has a sad...  I haven't been this sad since dear ole' Steve Irwin passed in a surf filled with stingrays... I still can't watch Animal Planet when Crocodile Hunter comes on and I see his cheery contenance across the telly...still mourning Steve.  I hope this doesn't keep me from watching Heston movies for a while... time will tell... sigh...

Yes, but the maniacs on the street weren't too pleased with me accusing them of blowing it up and subsequently damning them to hell.

WTF?!  Casablanca?"  Huh?



WTF?   STARTREK?!



Chuck as KIRK?!  Again, I reinterate... WTF?  F= FRAK...       wink



Man, I don't recall THAT episode!  It would have been classic acting if this were true?!   Heston as Kirk... dang!  Bless it anyways... hmmm... I don't get it...  Maybe this was his audition photo for Chuck attempting to star in the series in the making way back in the "Dark Ages" of the nineteen sixties!  Hmmm... maybe so, I dunno... hmmm...       flirt

As I understand it, Chuck was actually offered the role of Kirk originally.  He read for it, had publicity pics taken (see above), but ended up turning it down, due to it being "too celebral".  Either that, or it's an urban legend & those pics are photoshopped by you...

Hmmm... too 'celebral'?  Or too 'cerebral'?  Both make sense.  Just wondering which was Chucky's choice of a wording for a decision.  It goes to giving a glimpse into this dudes awesome frame of thinking.

I have no idea.  I voted for Omega Man because nobody else did.  He was a good man, or at least the ideal of him was good, and so shall it remain!

Quoted for truth.

My favorite Charlton Heston was the actual Charlton Heston.  If we're talking about his movies though, my favorite is The Omega ManThe Ten Commandments would be a close second.
