He gained notoriety as the gun-toting president of the NRA, but his career as an actor is undeniably important in cinema history. He was a giant, starring in “Ben-Hur,” “The Ten Commandments”, “El Cid,” “Touch of Evil,” “Soylent Green,” and my favorite, “Planet of the Apes” to name a few. I’ve never seen his Oscar-winning role in “Ben-Hur”, but I’m definitely going to catch it now in appreciation for a truly amazing performer. He will be missed.
Ah, damn you! DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!)
