I'll bet he and Moses are having a nice cup of honey and nectar as we type.

RIP, sir, and thanks for the decades of pleasure and inspiration you gave me.

One of my favorite Heston roles, from Touch of Evil.

Heston was the one who suggested to Universal that they should get Welles to direct the feature...
