Some Favourite Movies

    The subject of medals came up in another thread and that brought to mind a couple of old movies ( " The Blue Max " and also " Cross Of Iron " ). Then that reminded me of a very well made war movie from the 1960's entitled " The Battle Of Britain " where one could possibly make the case that the Rolls-Royce company saved England. Both the Spitfire and the Hurricane fighter-planes were powered by those very good RR built engines ( & those planes had to push back the German Luftwaffe ).

    Sad to say that veteran actor Alan Rickman has passed away at age 69. He may best be remembered for playing a villain in the " Harry Potter " films. I very much liked his role in " Bottle Shock " which takes place in California's Wine Country.

    We have lost another actor from the UK, Frank Finlay has passed away at age 89. Finlay played a lot of supporting roles in his lifetime and was nominated for an Oscar back in 1965. Three of the films that I remember him from are: " The Shoes Of The Fisherman " ( with Anthony Quinn ), " Cromwell " ( with Richard Harris ) & " The Wild Geese " ( with Richard Burton, Roger Moore as well as Richard Harris ). Findlay was also very active in the Theatre.
