"God damn you all to hell!"

Charlton Heston

1924 - 2008

“It's been quite a ride. I loved every minute of it.”

I loved the way that film brought the old testament to life. I love the old testament.

Inchy said...

I must admit, I've haven't seen either 'The Ten Commandments' or 'Ben Hur'.

I should really do something to rectify that.

Ron, Apparently said...

*Gasp*. Never seen Ben-Hur? I'm frankly stunned that a man with your almost encyclopedic knowledge of movies hasn't seen it.
Is the story about a bicycle being visible in the chariot race scene true? I've watched it a bunch of times and have never seen it.

Inchy said...

Well as poor old Charlton has shuffled off, that should mean that it'll be on tv some time soon. I'll make sure I save it.

Ben Hur is marvellous but Planet Of The Apes still knocks ten bells out of everything else. His legendary punch up in The Big Country is another highlight for me. Great man.

He had that old Hollywood thing down pat; he was the man!

I agree about Planet of The Apes being awesome...that movie rocked.

Not too sure I believed in his guns stance though...

RIP Mr Charlston.

Hey Inchy - we've got the same birthday! so add me to your list as well as Zac Efron from High School Musical, if you so desire ;) We're all Oct 18th-ers.

Inchy said...

What are the chances!

Welcome, my fellow Libran.
If it's ok with you, we'll leave Zac Efron out of this.

Anyway, I look forward to such cinematic gems as 'Earthquake' and 'Soylent Green' gracing our small screens sometime soon.

Ron, Apparently said...

Yes, yes...but what about the bicycle?

Inchy said...

Ok, we're going to have to throw this out to a wider audience.

Does ANYONE know if a bicycle is visible in the movie 'Ben Hur'?

Answers on a postcard, or

Ron, Apparently said...

Wow, the swap-shop number...

Inchy said...

Ok Ron, let's test your memory.

Can you remember the name of the band that featured Noel Edmonds, maggie Philbin, and Keith Chegwin, and what was their single called?

No Googling!

Ron, Apparently said...

'C'Mon Inchy, you're talking of course of the fabulous Brown Sauce and their hit single Winner or something similar

Inchy said...

Give that man a cigar!

The single was called 'I just wanna be a winner', and it was shite.
