Charlton Heston dies at age 84

Charlton Heston died Saturday night at the age of 84. Yahoo News story here.

I have enjoyed many of the films and documentaries Mr Heston made during his lifetime, particularly his best known films, Ten Commandents and Ben-Hur. Although he was an actor, I believe the one important thing I will remember about him is that we both share the same birthday, October 4.

I have understood that Mr Heston may have been battling symptons of Alzheimer’s diease since 2003. This is same disease that took former President Ronald Reagan life. He will be missed. It is an end of era in the cinema history today.

Update: Family statement here.
