ATLANTA (AP) — Retired Lt. Col. Oliver North's appointment as the next president of the National Rifle Association gives some star power to the gun lobby but also inspires disdain by gun-control advocates who call it a tone-deaf move that shows an unwillingness to find solutions to gun violence.

"Charlton Heston: Hollywood's Last Icon" (Dey Street), by Marc Eliot
Talk about your movie miracles: As a struggling stage actor Charlton Heston was down to posing nude for art classes to pay his rent in New York. Thirteen years later, he was posing with an Academy Award for "Ben-Hur" (1959), in which he played a man twice saved by Christ.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia judge's clash with the late actor Charlton Heston has indirectly led a U.S. appeals court to overturn a murder conviction.
The victim's family had created a blog during the 1998 trial that quoted Heston, of "Ben-Hur" and "The Ten Commandments" fame, calling Judge Lisa Richette soft on crime. Heston had called her by the nickname "Let 'em Loose Lisa" during a National Rifle Association speech that year in Philadelphia.
NEW YORK (AP) — A big-budget remake of "Ben-Hur" was trampled under a herd of holdovers and new releases at the box office, the latest casualty in a bruising summer for Hollywood.
The Paramount Pictures release, which cost about $100 million to make, debuted with just $11.4 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That makes it one of the season's more pricy flops, albeit one that never had anything like the ambition of 1959's Charlton Heston epic.
