    Albert Finney dead at 82

    I wasn't a big fan but he did have five Oscar noms.

    Me too ! He was a class act and a great actor. He didn't need a pompous title unlike Dame Elton John. LOL. RIP Sir.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    I take it he wasn't a snob.
    RIP, sir.

    It's been a Christmas ritual for me, my mum and sister to always watch his version of Scrooge on Xmas Eve since we were little. I love him in it. This is sad to hear because he was such a good actor who as others have said didn't fall into the trap many of the others. He acted because he loved doing it, not because it earned him lots of money and made him famous. R.I.P.

    RIP Albert.
    My profile picture and avatar are pictures of the lovely Agnetha Fältskog from ABBA, not me. I am a man, and an admirer of her. Friend proposers take note!
