One of the better things about this news, is that we will be treated to some of his movies in the coming week, I should imagine.

He made some terrific ones, both acting and directing. I don't know if you ever saw him Rumpy in 10 Rillington Place, where he played John Christie - he was superb.

I THINK I have seen "10 Rillington Place" but cant remember details. That is not say it was not a great movie lol

If it does not pop up on TV I will find a link and watch online.

We have had a few Robin Williams Movies pop up, so I hope the TV people here opt for a few Duxkie Attenborough ones as well.



ETA
I found movie online and posted link
