WOOOHOO!!!!

FUCKING YES

I FUCKING WIN A BET ONCE IN MY LIFE!!!

Charlton Heston, I had this bet going that he'd be the next mega-famous guy to kick the bucket

I FUCKING WIN, KA-CHIIIIIING

*ahem*

Rest in Peace. I really loved his biblical work, those films were a class act.
And despite being a gun-nut, he was far from being a total hick. Go wiki him, I won't tell you why he was a much awesomer guy than Michael Moore would ever point out in a documentary.

As they say, "From my cold dead hands".
I'm gonna go get me Charlton's rifle!

I was quite surprised to hear this, though I'm not sure why. He was REALLY old.


What did you win?

I guess I don't win much of anything, but it's just the principle of the thing.

He was Moses and the Omega Man (the original "I Am Legend"), El Cid, Marc Anthony, Ben Hur and Michelangelo. I will never forget "Soylent Green", that was scary.

Too bad he overshadowed his great name himself with his promotion of gun laws in the last years.

but then to the other hand he campaned for negro freedom
which I guess i should be happy for

his acting was the the very best supplementary

I could never sit through Ben Hur. (Yet somehow I managed "War and Peace" and "Gone with the Wind", oh the humanity D:)

And he looked frightfully unclean in "Planet of the Apes".

But rest in peace, anywho.

My favorite CH role was in Treasure Island. Straight to Video movie, but awesome production none the less.

Too bad it's only on VHS. No DVD and I haven't seen it on TV in years.

One shouldn't condemn a man for voicing his opinion, unless that opinion is somehow morally corrupt (e.g. racism, promotion of morally wrong activities, etc.). Everyone has a right to theirs...

Couldn't agree more (though it was more a promotion of guns than gun laws).

Aha, but where do we draw the line?
What if my opinion is that his opinion on some things was shitty?

I don't condemn him, exactly.... and I certainly didn't like what Michael Moore did to him in that Colombine film.
Yeah, really sticking it to the institution, Michael.. chasing an old man around his house with the photo of a murdered kid as though he was the guy that pulled the trigger.

He was a well-meaning old man with vastly different values from me, and I can easily respect that.
I still think his view on guns was lousy, but that's just me. I don't own one, see.

I certainly do not condemn anyone for voicing their opinion but Charlton Heston will remain in the memory of many people as the old gun fanatic while his life was so much more. That'a pity in my opinion but it was his choice and it's not Michael Moore's fault.

What Michael Moore was actually doing was pointing out that its not guns that kill people, its the idiots who use them that do that. Heston was targeted because he was the head of the NRA. Yes Heston was a good actor (and very probably a nice person in real life), but as YV pointed out he overshadowed that with the whole rifle issue.

The 'cold dead hands' thing was on all of the reports here.

ABC News played this on their report.

When I watch this clip though, I officially don't care about his rifle fixation.

Charlton Heston was an ACTOR. And one hell of an actor. Actors are used to weeks, sometimes months of preparation, yet all I'm hearing about is when he got blind-sided by fat-ass Michael Moore.

Heston did more in one year of his life than Moore ever will. And if you think that his NRA / pro-gun stance was his legacy, you're as foolish as the ones who swallow those Moore documentaries as fact. Heston was all about preserving the rights of citizens that we deemed necessary for over 200 years.

If you look back early in European history, you $#@!ers did a hell of a lot crazier shit than believing you have a right to bear arms. What about being Drawn and Quartered? Why was that such an acceptable party tradition back in the day? You had to buy tickets to some of those!!!
