Never to be Forgotten:
Lord Richard Attenborough 1923-2014
American audiences are most likely to recall his role in The Great Escape from early in his career. His greatest directorial successes were the biopics Gandhi, Cry Freedom and Chaplin. But of course, he is mentioned here for being in the first two Jurassic Park movies. He was also in Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story.
On a personal note, in these pictures when he is older, he looks like a morphing stage between my dad and my dad's older brother Bill. From a distance, he could be either one of them.
Best wishes to the family and friends of Lord Richard Attenborough, from a fan. He is never to be forgotten.
