RIP Albert Finney

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Just seen the news. I was lucky enough to have met him through my frienship with Rodney Bewe's fist wife who was a college friend,

Shall we say and interesting man!! Super actor though.

Goodness me that does feel like the end of an era!

As you say ... an super actor ... his performance in Under the Volcano was riveting.

RIP Mr Finney (he refused a knighthood).

Yes I think it was very sexy, in a nice way, for it’s time. What a gorgeous twinkle had in his eye...that lobster scene!

He was a brilliant Scrooge - I have the DVD. I also have the DVD of him doing Poirot.

Fine actor.
