    "Gordon Street? Ah, yes, Gordon Street. I once knew a girl who lived on Gordon Street. Long time ago, when I was a young man. Not a day passes I don't think of her and the promise that I made which I will always keep. That one perfect day on Gordon Street. That's uh, five blocks up, two over."

    They finally got an opportunity to wrench his gun out of his cold, dead hands, and not 40 years too soon.  What a bag of sh*t!!!  I often wondered how a soulless creep like that could sleep at night, knowing that his gun worshipping activism contributed to murders of thousands of people in this country.  But, since he was a subhuman piece of crap with no sense of remorse or contrition, this issue probably never entered his demented mind.  Or, what little there was of it.  Above the fact that he had gallons of blood on his hands, the old s-bag was also about the lamest actor in Hollywood history, slightly edging out that other rightwing d*ckhead, The Duke.  Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    As an actor he is always remember as Moses or in Ben-Hur. He had a lot of other films I enjoyed. "Will Penny", "Planet of the Apes", "Soylent Green", to name a few. I think his greatest attribute besides his good looks was his deep clear voice. I think a lot of modern actors wish they had that quality. Maybe not, once Brando popularized the "mumble", clear speech was in trouble. Anyway whether you enjoyed his term as the NRA president or not I believe he was also president of the Screen Actors Guild for quite a few years. RIP Mr. Heston.

    I sometimes find evidence of the irrelevance of the majority on this site. Charlton Heston is rated a 3.3 and Carlin a 4.4? Unreal. There is no comaprison in my mind who contributed more. I do understand though...Carlin is much like many of the reviewers on here in that they mock religion and lack standards or decency and Heston was the head of the NRA, and stood for what was good and right, I understand. It is just laughable to me to see Carlin so high and Heston so low. Fischer seems to me, is the only one the site got right. I am surprised he was not built up by the liberal majority on this site for his anti-American views.

    He wasn't my favorite actor but he was a fine actor. He could at times, overact, but for the most part he did a good job. He played some larger than life characters, like Moses, Ben Hur and Andrew Jacksson, but one of my favorite movies with Heston was when he played opposite of Gregory Peck in "The Big Country", which happens to be one of my favorite movies. He certainly deserved the ass whuppin' he got in that movie. A far as his personal life goes, that's his business, but he did strike me as a man that lived by and stood on principle. Hard to fault a man for that. R.I.P.

    Hasn't really acted in quite a while, and when he did he was nothing special, all too often given to scenary chewing histrionics.I could care less about his politics, one way or the other, and I certainly can't say his death made any impact on me at all.

    Heston became very unpopular with liberals towards the end of his life, but he was an amazing American icon. His film roles in The Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, and Planet of the Apes are timeless. Recently he allowed himself to be cast as a crazy, gun-waving old man. While his stance on gun control is hotly debated in this country, I give Heston credit for exercising his freedom of speech as an individual and not just a celebrity. Heston was anti McCarthyism and anti segregation in his earlier years, and even marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Washington. His views became more conservative as he aged, and I respect him for expressing his views without fear of what others may think. His talent was immense, and he was a man who wasn't afraid to speak his mind, no matter if his views would be deemed popular or not. He hated political correctness, and that is a feeling that seems to be lacking in today's world of celebrity.
