I'd intended to post a few words about Charlton Heston to coincide with the TCM tribute going on right now, but I'm pretty much done with all this so I'll confine myself to writing that he was a true movie star, an actor who kept trying and a wonderful man.
I would encourage anyone who reads this within the next hour to watch the TCM Private Screenings he did ten years ago, which airs at 8:00 PM EDT.
Rest in Peace, Chuck.
