Nerve.com and IFC have compiled a list of the 50 Greatest Comedy Sketches of All Time Lists like this are always subjective, there are Carol Burnett sketches I prefer over 'Went With the Wind'(#22)for instance, but all in all a good sampling of great sketches.
'$240 Worth of Pudding'(#47) was a source of much joy for me and friend Lee during our college years. I could often be heard saying, ". . .and I'm Barry, Sagittarius."

Charlton Heston died last night. I always liked him as an actor, and his role as George Taylor in Planet of the Apes is one of my favorite perfomances in one of my favorite movies.
Heston also appeared as 'Mike' Vargas in Orson Welles' 1958 noir classic, A Touch of Evil. Another great role in another one of my all-time favorite movies.
When I was very young (and Catholic) I remember watching The Ten Commandments with my family every Easter.
1980's The Mountain Men was one of the first 'R' rated movies I ever saw. My neighbors had a giant KU band satellite dish, and I saw the film on HBO. I don't remember much about the movie save for lots of course languange and a fight scene that (if I remember correctly) had Heston's character taking a bite out of the man with whom he was fighting. I remember loving it, but haven't seen it since.
Since announcing his affliction with Alzheimer's, he hadn't really worked much, but his impact was great, and he leaves a legacy of great films.
