    Tonight, the hands are cold. :tear:

    "From my cold, dead hands...!"


    Actor Charlton Heston has died: Was Moses in "The Ten Commandments". Also portrayed "Ben Hur"

    A true giant, on and off the screen - both in film, life, and now, death.

    I remember him being interviewed on Irish telly a few years ago. The host was commenting on his long term marriage. This was when Ireland was preparing to vote on legalised divorce.

    The host asked him - "In all those years have you never considered
    divorce?"

    Heston replied, "No, never. Murder maybe, but never divorce!"

    Classic.

    Ah, but he stole that line from Billy and Ruth Graham! Actors -- they speak other people's lines very well.

    This seems like a most inappropriate time and place to say such a thing. :BangHead:

    It truly saddens me to hear this news; Charlton Heston was one of the great actors whom I will miss. :tear:

    I really don't care who said it first - I thought it was brilliant line at just the right time.

    May God bless Charlton Heston's family and friends and many, many fans. I would rate him at the top of my list of actors that I enjoy watching.

    He was my president.

    I also loved him in Planet of the Apes....

    R.I.P., Mr. Heston, sir.

    I liked him in "Ben Hur". IMO a much better picture than "10 Commandments".

    I think that I'll get out the DVD Bible narration he did several years ago and watch it tomorrow.

    Good night Mr. Heston, may your family have comfort. :tear:

    What I remember most about him is his use of God's name in vain in Planets of the Apes.

    Ben Hur dies

    Charlton Heston died. Best known for his historic and religious films, and also for his anti gun control crusade in later life.
    "From my cold, dead hands" when it came to restricting gun ownership.

    love,

    Sopranette

    Has he already been buried, and no one know where?

    I guess the NRA can truly say, "From his cold dead hands..."
