Charlton Heston, Passing of a True Icon

04.06.08 The world has been diminished once again with the passing of a movie legend. Charlton Heston has moved on. He was 84.
I grew up watching this man working his magic on the silver screen. Well known for Ben-Hur and The Commandments, he played many many other roles. My favorites movies of his are Will Penny, The Mountain Men, Touch of Evil and of course, Planet of the Apes. He was a heroic icon from a different age of film and cultural standards than what exists today. In so many ways, a better and stronger one, I think. Happy Trails, Chuck!!!
