Charlton Heston passed away. While I strongly disagreed with his politics, his role as Moses in the Ten Commandments (1956) is the most famous portrayal of Moses since ..., well since Moses. Being a Bible scholar, and a fan of pop culture, I've researched and written quite a bit on the topic of the Hebrew Bible in film. This means that I've seen The Ten Commandments about 300 times and sadly have the entire horrible dialogue memorized. Mostly I wrote about the topic of why all Bible movies are so awful. And I smile when I think of his other over-the-top campy films, such as Soylent Green, Planet of the Apes, and Ben Hur.
And now that his hands are cold and dead, can we have his gun?
