  1. I apologize in advance for the incredibly insensitive remark I am about to make on this, the occasion of the fine actor’s passing. I just can’t help myself.Does this mean we can pry his rifle from his cold, dead hands now?

  2. Good riddens to the evil old fart. This just proves bad things happen to bad people. He was pure evil, and I’d love to be the one to pull the rifle from his cold dead hand.

  3. Aaron:Well, we can start with Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, and Mary Pickford for one… if they hadn’t started UA, the studio system probably would never have come apart… You’d have to make room for Thomas Edison and Eddie Muybridge though. There’d be a lot of faces on that Rushmore.David B:I wouldn’t go with “pure evil”. He actually seems to have been a very complex man. At the very least, think Bester from Bab5.

  4. David B.Anyone who uses “pure evil” in the same line with a man who was one of the most out spoke proponents of Civil Rights risks ruining the the phrase “pure evil” and showing his armchair ignoramus status. Please, and if you ever feel like using Hitler in a phrase, stop, unless you are actually just talking about him or someone else who might truly be viewed as “pure evil” ie.. Stalin, Mao, Genghis Khan or Alexander (Not so) Great. He should be reviled not trivialized by bad comparisons. Just as Heston should be honored for being a complex man among mice, not trivialized by bad comparisons.

  5. Griffin: my sentiments exactly. Heston was a contradiction (Cuvil Rights + guns) but so was JFK, Malcolm X(gun owner), King, and good ol’ Daniel Shays( gun owner)… the left has a hard time comprehending the complexity in human choices, and looks at everything from polarized glasses, choosing selective heroes that embody polarization.
