Charlton Heston has died. Cecile B. DeMille's epic movie "The Ten Commandments," with its cast of thousands, came out in 1956. For me, seeing the film as a child then, Heston did not just play the part of Moses. He WAS Moses.
If there really is a Heaven, just think what kind of welcome Charlton Heston must be getting round about now! He and God would have much to talk about.
Update: Old Picture of the Day has a wonderful personal encounter story about Heston at

Agree with destitute rebel, a fitting tribute, to an actor, who to me will always be Ben Hur.
