Amen to that. I liked him from the first time I ever saw him in a movie and of course subsequently, after getting to know his character, personality, and patriotic views through research.Mr Heston will never be forgotten and always be remembered for the great man he is!
Thanks, opos. I read the poem before but the music on that video you shared makes it more powerful.
That's about as low class as it gets.God forbid the twitter generation will have this man, the one media and Hollywood are shoving down our throats, as their "Charlton Heston" 20 years from now:
George [Clooney] was in town to accept the Special Filmmaking Achievement Award from the National Board of Review. He made history at that event by wisecracking in a politically incorrect manner that "Charlton Heston announced again today that he is suffering from Alzheimer's."
When I asked the actor if this was going too far, he said simply, "I don't care. Charlton Heston is the head of the National Rifle Association; he deserves whatever anyone says about him." (Clooney is a heavy hitter against the gun lobby.) He's also graphically and fully informed about world events and embraces the label "political liberal," saying he grew up thinking that's what we were supposed to be in a democracy.
