RIP.

Planet of the Apes is one of those films that if it comes on while i'm flicking through channels, I am compelled to watch it to the end.

Yes, a little known fact is that Charlton Heston was Sephardic.

Of course.

After all he was an Egyptian Jew that was wealthy and eventually moved to Beverley Hills.

Had to be Sephardim

Thank you.

It is of course very indicative of class to point out other's perceived lack of it.

I just watched Ben Hur and The Ten Commandments two weeks ago at Easter. I'm sorry to see him pass.

He suffered from Alzheimer's Disease. It is usually not the disease that kills the person but one of a host of rather nasty sequelae such as aspiration pneumonia, dehydration, pressure ulcers, etc.

Though they didn't say what he died from, Mr. Heston was in the final stages of Alzheimer's disease.

Nope. That's why I said what I said in my first post in this thread. He showed great dignity in how he publicly dealt with the disease.

I had lunch with him once about 10 years ago. Real nice guy, very unassuming for all his fame. (There were other men in the small lunch party, including the NRA's Wayne La Pierre, but Heston was sitting directly across the table from me.)
