Hollywood Legend Charlton Heston Dies– Nutroots React
Film legend Charlton Heston passed away Saturday at his Beverly Hills home.
Who could forget this?
Power Line describes the planning and execution of the chariot race scene for Ben Hur.
Charlton Heston was a brilliant actor. His death is a great loss for the film industry.
The LA Times reported:
John Charles Carter was born Oct. 4, 1923, in Evanston, Ill. His father, Russell Whitford Carter, moved the family to St. Helen, Mich., where Heston lived an almost idyllic boyhood, hunting and fishing.
He entered Northwestern University’s School of Speech in 1941 on a scholarship from the drama club. While there, he fell in love with a young speech student named Lydia Clarke. They were married March 14, 1944, after he had enlisted in the Army Air Forces. Their union was one of the most durable in Hollywood, lasting 64 years in a town known for its highly publicized divorces, romances and remarriages.
Rest in peace, Charlton Heston.
Here’s another comment from the Democratic Underground:
“The wicked warlock of the NRA is dead!!”
And, of course, the Huffington Post does not upset:
Dead and that is a relief. I can’t think of anything he did that advanced the good of the world.
