    Ohhhh. I just read that he was in the end stages of Alzheimer's. I loved him as an actor, and had a crush on Ben Hur. **swoon**

    RIP, Charlton.

    That's cool, JBean.

    His name always confused me. I want to spell it "Charleston". Good thing I'm not in charge of his burial.

    The man died after suffering from Alzheimer's for years, so I highly doubt it. That wasn't funny, imo.

    RIP, Charlton.
    I agree about him in the Ben Hur role. He was ruggedly handsome.

    Kudos to the Hestons for remaining married for 64 years in Hollywood.

    Rest in peace, Mr Heston.

    I didn't think so, either. Rude, in fact.

    RIP, Charlton. He was one of the ones you wish could live forever. A legend.

    He was a terrific actor, he starred in another great movie that I loved "The Greatest Show On Earth," he played the manager of a circus. He was also offered the starring role in the movie "High Noon" & turned it down, bet Gary Cooper was glad about that! I'll miss you Chuck, RIP...

    Have to agree with you and IM... I thought it was rude too.

    RIP Charlton

    I thought it was a reasonable question given the circumstances. I wondered the same thing. Floh could very well have meant her question seriously - she, unlike you, did not put any sarcastic smileys to indicate otherwise.

    And even if she did, Mr. Heston put himself out there far and wide publicly about his views on guns - that makes him fair game. (no pun intended)
