I'll never forget that line.

Truly a sad day. One of my favorite actors on and off screen. Charlton Heston dies April 6th, at the age of 84.

Just saw it on the news here at home. It's a damn shame. He was one fine actor.
I know him mostly from Ben-Hur, Airport 1975 and the Planet of the Apes movies.
Rest in peace.

I smoked a fatty this evening for ya Chucky Heston, had an everclear and o.j as well. You were a helluva man, a killer actor and a great man politically. Im sorry our country has degraded to such a religioulsy ass-fucked and leftist shit-hole as it is. Im gonna dig out and watch the Omega man soon, hope ya dig that revised role.

May you rest in peace.

The man had a wonderful career, that's for sure! Just today I heard a voice clip on the radio, and sure enough, they played the title of this topic. Classic, I love Planet of the Apes, the new one was nothing like it...

I was a little too young, probably about 6 the first time I saw Planet of the apes. It was pretty tame by today's standards. No blood and guts, but there was a lot of creepy stuff going on.

Taylor saw one of his friends in a museum who had been stuffed and mounted for display. He later discovered the other had been used for experimental brain surgery to prevent the apes from discovering the existence of an intelligent human. A few more lines I'll never forget...

(Witnessing the partially shaven head and the horrifying scar left from his friend's lobotomy)
George Taylor: You did this. You cut up his brain you bloody baboon!!

(After discovering the Post Apocalyptic remains of a 500 year old Statue of Liberty and realizing his space ship had not landed on an Ape Planet)
[last lines]
George Taylor: Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it.
[screaming]
George Taylor: You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!

Try as they did. The 4 sequels, the TV & cartoon series, and the 2001 remake don't compare to the original.
I hope they do a Best of Heston week on TV soon so I can watch them all again.
