Charlton Heston's Epic Ends With a Bang

Scoring Update! The points change, death remains the same...

Charlton Heston, who won the 1959 best actor Oscar as the chariot-racing "Ben-Hur" and portrayed Moses, Michelangelo, El Cid and other heroic figures in movie epics of the '50s and '60s, has died. He was 84.

"Charlton Heston was seen by the world as larger than life. He was known for his chiseled jaw, broad shoulders and resonating voice, and, of course, for the roles he played," Heston's family said in a statement. "No one could ask for a fuller life than his. No man could have given more to his family, to his profession, and to his country."
Congratulations and 6 points each awarded to the Garden of eden, A Time to Kill, Deep Sleepers, 6 Feet Under, The South Shall Rise (from the Grave) Again, and Whoaa-ooah, Dying on the Edge. The Rosters and Standings have been updated.
