Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I'll miss 'im, one of my favorite Brits. This film was one of the high points of British cinema - the opening with the great Finlay Currie as Magwitch is one of the best scenes in the movies, ever, IMHO, and Mills was perfect as Pip, my favorite Dickens character. My favorite Mills movie, tho, was "Ice Cold In Alex", a real character piece, with the smashing Sylvia Syms, and Anthony Quayle's greatest role. Another great passes, sniff. BCNU
Wasn't he 97? BCNU
Sad to see Sir John pass on, though 97 is a ripe old age. My favorite movie of his--and also one of my favorite Charles Laughton flicks--is Hobson's Choice (1954). "By gum!"
Oops...math and me not so good friends. I'll go with Hobson's Choice too...although I'm waiting on that Ryan's Daughter DVD which is supposed to be right around the corner...
