"You take a helluva long time to say goodbye"-My favorite western THE BIG COUNTRY, maybe cuz I was a little kid the first time I saw it and that set the clock for me.
Will they bury him with a gun in his cold dead fingers?
I agree with Bear, in that he mostly did overact. I like the Shatner comparison, with the exception that SHatner always had fun with his own image.
Do you think Heston, perhaps, also had a hoot over his own image? Did he have a great sense of humour?
Does anyone know anything about him as a person? His gun stuff appears to have overshadowed all else in his latter years.
I was impressed with his demeanour when Michael Moore snuck that interview.
Given that his death will likely spark a spate of Heston movies on TV, I'd be interested in knowing about good non-epics he made.
