Oscar-nominated British actor Albert Finney has died aged 82 after a short illness.
He was a five-time Oscar nominee who began his career at the Royal Shakespeare Company before making his mark in film.

His big film break came as "angry young man" Arthur Seaton in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning.
He went on to star in Tom Jones, as Hercule Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express, Erin Brockovich and Skyfall.
A statement from a family spokesman said: "Albert Finney, aged 82, passed away peacefully after a short illness with those closest to him by his side.
"The family request privacy at this sad time."

Sad news. One of a clutch of young actors in the 50's and 60's who changed the face of drama.

R.I.P Albert.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

That version of Murder on the Orient Express was on satellite a few days ago, a star studded cast.

RIP

I completely forgot he was in the lead role in this one.



Highly underrated

As Poirot he sounded more like Inspector Clouseau from the Pink Panther films.

So sad, I always admired Albert especially with his endearing film Scrooge (1970) and Erin Brockovich,
I always make it a must to watch 'his' Scrooge during the Christmas period.
RIP and condolences to his family.
