R.I.P. Charlton Heston

I was just asked if Charlton Heston was still alive. And now we know. One of his most famous lines can be found here. Someone has put together a Planet of the Apes - MUSICAL on YouTube. It was kind of fun.

For those of you who are interested in a more serious story you can check out CNN's obit or just read the excerpt below.
"LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Actor Charlton Heston died at Beverly Hills home at the age of 84 Saturday, his family said.

Heston, known for portrayals of larger than life figure including Moses and Ben Hur, was suffering the late stages of Alzheimer's Disease.

The Internet Movie Database listed 126 movies and television production credits for Heston, starting in 1941. He rose to fame in the 1950s with starring movie roles including Ben Hur, for which he won an Oscar. He played Moses in the Ten Commandments."


This was so newsworthy, it was mentioned in the headlines on IDF radio news at 10:00 AM today.
