Moses Dead At 84

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charlton Heston, the Oscar winner who portrayed Moses and other heroic figures on film in the '50s and '60s and later championed conservative values as head of the National Rifle Association, has died. He was 84.

The actor died Saturday night at his home in Beverly Hills with his wife Lydia at his side, family spokesman Bill Powers said. He declined to comment on the cause of death or provide further details.

"Charlton Heston was seen by the world as larger than life. He was known for his chiseled jaw, broad shoulders and resonating voice, and, of course, for the roles he played," Heston's family said in a statement.

Heston revealed in 2002 that he had symptoms consistent with Alzheimer's disease.

With his large, muscular build, well-boned face and sonorous voice, Heston proved the ideal star during the period when Hollywood was filling movie screens with panoramas depicting the religious and historical past.

"I have a face that belongs in another century," he often remarked.

Rest In Peace Moses. I am sure for somebody you were good for something.

RB,I don't think what Count said was so bad. Hell,not everyone liked Heston. Hells I'm sure Heston didn't much care for some folks either.

Personally I liked the guy fairly well. I thought he pandered too much to the nuttiest gun owners during his stint as head of the NRA,but that's just my opinion. As a firearms owner myself,I think that he did some good there. The Eddie Eagle program comes to mind.

Anyways,RIP Mr. Heston. We didn't always see eye to eye,but I wish you a peaceful sleep.

If this was left by the ranger then I really don't give 2 shits about "offending" him.

I thought it was. It sounded like a miffed RB.

Admittedly,I could be wrong.
