It seems like every year another great actor is added to the list in the sky :(

A sad day for the great artists of screen/stage and for those who love their performances.

TnT :sad:

One of the last true gentlemen.

A true legend has passed.

As well as "Ice Cold in Alex", "Great Expectations" would be a favourite of mine.

RIP Sir John, I wish I could state we will see your like again...

"Look boys, shot through the 'eart".....In Which We Serve. Got to agree with Mr D, Hobsons Choice :ok:

RIP Sir John - to me you epitomised what is truly best about a real "British gentleman" - you always displayed an understatement, a courtesy and a gentility that crossed all boundaries and scorned no-one.

Really enjoyed the ending in Ice Cold where the levels of the 4 Carlsbergs were up, down, up again without being touched. Poor continuity but a good film. The first of his films that I remember seeing was Swiss Family Robinson - fantastic, and quite scary for a young sprog.
