Charlton Heston (1924 - 2008)

The gargantuan movie star of such classics as Ben-Hur, Planet of the Apes, and The Ten Commandments has passed away at the age of 83.

Whether or not you agreed with Heston's vocally conservative and uncompromising political views, there's no denying that the man was a larger-than-life presence, on and off the screen. He's certainly left his mark on the history of cinema, and will be remembered for it.
