Charlton Heston meets Dame Edith

March 23, 2013 , ,

The relatively dead Charlton Heston is resurrected to play Ben Hur and Moses this time of the year.  His public image at his death with his cold fingers wrapped around his gun have somehow surpassed that of the young buff actor who played these religious roles.  He came to stand for the NRA, and the NRA has come to stand for a whole lot.  Some old angry dude lent his celebrity to the NRA like Clint Eastwood did for the Republican party.  Somehow an untarnished reputation as a pure actor seems more valuable to me than these actor endorsements of political positions. Their mothers told them that if they die in a political public outrage their face will freeze like that ( in the public memory).  If Charlton is believable in Planet of the Apes, then he is not believable as a political voice of the people.  We never should have allowed Ronnie and Nancy to ride out of Hollywood and into the White House, blurring the lines between politics and showbiz.  At least Dame Edna shows the proper amount of respect.
