Charlton Heston: 1924-2008


One of the greatest, if not the greatest actors to ever live has left us today, Charlton Heston. As perfect as an actor can get, he gave us great characters from the historical to the fantastic.

Ben Hur” is and always will be my favorite film, and I argue the best film ever made. Much of that greatness is because of Heston. I’m at a loss for words to describe his talent, and it is difficult to imagine his passing. I’ve always wanted to meet the man…

Whether or not you agreed with his politics, you can’t deny the greatness of the man on an off the screen. Once leader of the Screen Actors Guild, staunch supporter of civil rights, and consummate gentleman, Charlton Heston will always be with us.
