Bummer: Charlton Heston Died

I’ve always been a fan of SF films, but some just stand out as my favourites. They include 2001: A Space Odyssey, Planet of the Apes (the originals), Soylent Green, Logan’s Run, Twelve Monkeys, and some of the Star Wars and Star Trek films, to name a few.

But Heston helped bring SF films to the masses, allowing it to be respectable instead of just B rate fare as it was before Planet of the Apes.

And Heston uttered one of my favourite quotes:

“I’ve played three presidents, three saints and two geniuses – and that’s probably enough for any man”
