As much as I loved and respected Charlie, I have to point out the obvious. Namely, he was a TERRIBLE actor. That's not to say, though, that he wasn't fun and compelling to watch. Thing's like "Soylent Green is made out of people!" and "Damn dirty apes!" were constant running gags in my family during childhood. We'll miss you buddy! "Soylent Green is made out of people!"...why go with the wordy quote? Pithy, pithy. "SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE." Now THAT'S pith.
Verbosity makes me pithy.
I pray you are chatting with Moses even now, Mr. Heston.
