The late Charlton Heston's Basement .


“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.”

Let’s see.
1. A couple of hundred million dollars of spending money.

Thank you Steve. Whether they’re Mr. Heston’s or not, the collection is still incredible.
