Heston Dies

Actor Charlton Heston died on Saturday at the age of 84. Heston starred in a number of memorable SF movies, including “Planet of the Apes” (as well as a cameo as an ape in the Wahlberg remake), “Soylent Green” and “The Omega Man”.

Personally, I think his best performance was in (no, not “Ben-Hur”) a remake of "Treasure Island" where he starred as the crafty old pirate Long John Silver.

I can’t say I approved of his politics vis-à-vis firearms, but I will say he was a solid actor.
