Charlton Heston, as Moses, Parts The Red Sea

Hollywood legend Charlton Heston passed away over the weekend (April 5th, 2008) at age 83. Although I was never a fan of Heston’s misguided support of the NRA or his wacky right wing political views, he was a pretty good actor. I especially enjoyed his fine performance as Moses in The Ten Comandments, which I try to watch whenever it is on TV.
