Rest in Peace...

Charleton Heston has died.

Heston was a good actor, who after receiving great acclaim for his work leading to an Oscar, was reduced to B-movies and semi-obscurity.

All that until he became President of the NRA. None of us from the culture that respects our gun rights will ever forget Heston thundering the words in each of our hearts: "From my cold, dead, hands."

Update: I just found this trailer for The Omega Man, courtesy of The Drawn Cutlass. I knew that Will Smith's recent I am Legend was a remake of something, but I didn't realize that it was of The Omega Man. It's kinda campy to look at now and I wonder if I am Legend will be thought of in the same way some time in the future.
