He was a great actor in his day.

And living to 84 years of age may not be the 100 years some people aim for, but he still had a full life.

Ben-Hur, The Ten Commandments, El Cid, 55 Days At Peking, Planet Of The Apes, The Omega Man, Soylent Green etc. What a man, what an actor, what a career. His presence in cinema was huge and i for one will miss it greatly. There was something about his personality, his facial features and his incredible voice that set him apart and made him instantly recognizable. When Heston played it, it was big in every way. What more can i say? Rest in peace Mr. Heston.

You know what? If i had to pick the most powerful 5 minutes of any science fiction film ever made, i'd pick the last 5 minutes of "Planet Of The Apes". A more powerful statement against nuclear proliferation simply does not exist in cinema.

A fine actor in some of the best films of all time.

And I know this may be wholly inappropriate, but I have to know if he had his gun in his hand with him....

Its amazing what you find out about someone once they are dead. Personally I have not seem him in many movies (shocking i know) other than Midway but he does sound like someone who stood up for what he believed in regardless of the public's opinion. I'll have to go find some of the movies and see what everyone says about him as far as his movie career was concerned. RIP
