And despite the fact he turned into a right wing, gun-toting fascist, I still love some of his movies. Two of my faves, Planet Of The Apes & The Warlord. While one was more well known, the other is probably my favorite, and impossible to get on DVD. And of course, as Sir Charles Gordon in Khartoum, another of my favorites, he played a fanatic historical figure, much as Moses was in The Ten Commandments; both driven by God to deeds of fanatical greatness.

And I'm really sorry he died of Alzheimer's, a terrible way to go.

So Charlton, I guess you get to go up and chat with the real Moses now, and see what he thought of your performance...
