Moses To Heston: Hey Lil' Buddy!

4/6/2008 8:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Legendary actor Charlton Heston, who uttered the best line in a movie ever -- "Take your stinking paws off of me you damn dirty ape!!" -- died at his Beverly Hills home last night at the age of 84.

The actor, who as head of the NRA once said you would have to pry a rifle from his "cold, dead hands," died with his wife Lydia at his side. He had been battling Alzheimer's.

No, I don't think so, you disrespectful jerk. I rather think that Mr. Heston's antique rifle will remain family property,
but of course you could always ask them. My father's Winchester rifle is in my hands, though, and I know what it is like
to lose a parent to Alzheimer's. Want to try taking it from me? I didn't think so.
