I didn't agree with his politics, but I met him briefly once at an anniversary screening of the original PLANET OF THE APES. I think this wasn't long before he announced his illness, but he seemed genial enough.
I have no doubt his body of film work will long outlive memories of his politics, and he'll deserve those longterm honors well.
