Charlton Heston, days later

Charlton Heston died Saturday April 5, 2008 at the age of 84. What can I say? Movie legend, 1960's civil rights activist, NRA president, and one darned handsome man. A mystery wrapped in an enigma. Plus he entered the national lexicon with this quote from the movie Planet of the Apes: "Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape". Which Charlton Heston will you miss? Get more tidbits about Mr. Heston from the Biography Resource Center. Or read his autobiography In the Arena.
