Charleton Heston, Oscar winner for Ben Hur, died Saturday night at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 84 years old.
His wife of 64 years, Lydia, was at his side, the Heston family said in a statement.
Time Magazine posted this on it's website.
God is dead. Charlton Heston, the man-deity of movies, passed away yesterday in Los Angeles.
Heston didn't just play great roles, he imposingly,
thrillingly embodied them. Moses (in The Ten Commandments), Michelangelo (The
Agony and the Ecstasy), Rodrigo Diaz (El Cid), Judah Ben-Hur in the Godzilla of
Biblical epics: he slipped into these outsize figures as if into a second skin,
stamped his strong visage on theirs. He also, actually, did play God once — in
the 1990 Paul Hogan comedy Almost an Angel — but he had revealed his movie
divinity long before that.
