This is truly a sad day for me because he was one of my favorite actors of all time and the fact that he had alot of the same interests as I have really makes me sad. Thank you Mr. Heston for all of the great movies you have done and for protecting the rights of all freedom loving law abiding citizens to own guns.
Does that mean you "kinda" sleep with your mom, too? My father was a Mason. Does that make me "kinda" one? Why must perfectly serious threads go to such absurd and insipid commentaries.
Mr. Heston was a bit of the Goldwater of his time. From his early years throughout his career, he stood for the issues he believed in, regardless of political ideologies. A man of many awards and accomplishments, I always felt he was most proud of his presidency of the NRA as far as what it meant to him as an American.
I was outraged when I saw the scene from a michael moore movie in which he misled Mr. Heston into allowing him into his home, then ambushed him, a feeble old man in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's, with ridiculous accusations. The greater man's poise, even after the black magic of moore's editing, maintained the reputation of a long life of dignity and character.
I'm not well informed on the subject, but I did get the impression that the NRA was very wrong to still have him run up for them in his condition. What Moore did was deplorable, but so was what he filmed, it did make me realise how old the man had become. Honestly I can't see why anyone, especially not someone of his achievements should be used to parade for any cause, on either side. I think it's hard enough for an actor with alzheimer to try and maintain honor. Why put him out in public and offer his credibility for target practice? I try to forget that episode and just remember the massive actor.
