Charlton Heston passed away today. I did this piece to commemorate his role as Taylor in the only Planet of The Apes movie that counts. While I really dug the production design in the remake with Marky Mark, the 1968 version had a charm that got lost in the newer version of the film…besides that, the original starred Chucky Heston, c’mon.
Somewhere, anti-gun lobbyists are scrambling to grab Chucky’s gun.
Rest in peace, Mr. Heston.
