Ben Hur - Dead at 84

Charlton Heston dead at 84 yrs. One of my favorite actors. He's best know for his "10 Commandments" and "Ben-Hur", but I also like his "Solant Green".

Heston, who died Saturday night at 84, was a towering figure both in his politics and on screen, where his characters had the ear of God (Moses in "The Ten Commandments"), survived apocalyptic plagues ("The Omega Man") and endured one of Hollywood's most-grueling action sequences (the chariot race in "Ben-Hur," which earned him the best- actor Academy Award).

He will be missed.

My prayers to his family and friends.
