Charlton Heston 1924-2008
If you were born at about the time I was (early 60's), there's a good chance that your first favorite movie starred Charlton Heston. My first film memories were of stuff like The Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, Omega Man...and this one.
Heston was not the world's greatest actor, but as a "movie star", he had few peers. He was an icon, and he will be missed.
