RIP Charlton Heston

Charlton Heston was a great actor and a man committed to his beliefs. I was sorry to hear about his death this morning. He had some great movies which I really enjoyed, Touch of Evil, Ten Commandments and The Planet of the Apes. He also did a great dvd tour of the Holy Land with Biblical excerpts which was really good. He lived a great life. RIP Sir
