I just learned that Charlton Heston died. With so many famous people out there its hard to have one or two that stick out as representing Hollywood. In my opinion, Heston represented “big actor.” Link
One of the first major movies I fell in love with was Ben Hur. Bear in mind I am a child of the 80s. I had seen Star Wars and E.T. and Raiders of the Lord Ark… but when I saw Ben Hur on ABC as a kid, it captivated me… and mostly because of the lead character played by Charlton Heston.
Many people will remember him for his later political activity. I am chosing to remember him as the great actor.
