LOS ANGELES - Charlton Heston, who won the 1959 best actor Oscar as the chariot-racing "Ben-Hur" and portrayed Moses, Michelangelo, El Cid and other heroic figures in movie epics of the '50s and '60s, 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.

Powers declined to comment on the cause of death or provide further details.

I can't read Exodus without thinking of him.  Memory eternal.

I have enjoyed so many of his movies, especially Ben-Hur, El Cid, The Ten Commandments and, yes, Planet of the Apes.

Memory eternal! He was a fantastic actor. I actually just watch the 10 Commandments the other night; one of my favorite movies.

Memory eternal. Ben-Hur was an absolute masterpiece of theater--one of the best works of the 20th century, and Heston was the perfect choice to play that role.

With the Saints give rest, O Christ, to the soul of Your servant, where there is no pain, nor sorrow, nor suffering, but life everlasting.

moved to the prayer forum.  At this time prayers for the soul of Charlton Heston should be the focus.  We should not judge for there is only One Who Judges.  Discussing the man's political views are not for Other topics forum NOR the prayer forum.  With that I ask that we may all remember Mr. Heston in our prayers, may his memory be eternal.  -username!

Not to mention The Omega Man.  Pure early 1970's camp.   Cool  (Where's the smiley with the afro?)

May God comfort his family.  I heard he was married to his wife for over sixty years.  You don't see that in Hollywood too often.
