A very nice appreciation of Charlton Heston from the NYT last December. I missed it somehow. The picture above was taken in 1961. The quote is from the film "Touch of Evil", with Heston, Orson Welles, Marlene Dietrich and Janet Leigh.
"If you've got to resist, your chances of being hurt are less the more lethal your weapon. If that were my wife, would I want her to have a .38 Special in her hand? Yeah." - Dr. Arthur Kellermann, Health Magazine (March/April 1994) p 61
