Charlton Heston, who won a best actor Oscar for his starring role in the epic Ben Hur has died, aged 84, a spokesman for the star's family has said.
Heston died on Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills with his wife Lydia, whom he married in 1944, at his side.
Heston also portrayed Michelangelo, El Cid and other heroic figures in movie epics of the 1950s and 1960s.
He stepped down as president of US gun lobby, the National Rifle Association (NRA), in 2003, citing ill-health.
The previous year, he had revealed he had symptoms consistent with Alzheimer's disease.

Made some of my all-time favorites films like The Omega Man, The Ten Commandments, Planet of the Apes and Ben Hur, but I will remember him more for something else. Walking away from his interview with Michael Moore in his own home in the movie Bowling For Columbine.

He will be missed.

That's a damn shame, he's one of the finest actors ever in the last century. I especially remember classics such as Ben Hur and El Cid. In a way, it's a part of history gone. RIP

Compared to what you see in Hollywood today, Charlton Heston was a class act to the end. RIP.
