Charlton Heston

I was trying to think of something to say about Charlton Heston dying. If you know me at all you'll know that films like the Ten Commandments and particularly Ben-Hur, let alone Planet of the Apes, Soylent Green & Omega Man, have all made a tremendous impact on my cinematic conciousness. But instead of waffling, I'll just post some photos that sum up my mixed feelings about the man, whom - despite my reservations - I admire the hell out of.


  1. yeah he was smart him.
    There was this really old film I saw once where he was an african plantation owner. Then this massive army of killer ants started eating a path through the jungle straight towards his land. It was kind of an early sci-fi for him I guess. Have you seen that one? It`s good.

  2. Yeah, The Naked Jungle. I remember watching that on a Saturday afternoon when I was a kid. One which is definitely worth checking out is Secret of the Incas, where he's a prototypical Indiana Jones. No kidding, check it out:
