There will be no "Greats" alive any longer pretty soon.

R.I.P. Mr. Finney

What I liked about Albert was that he did what he wanted to do career wise. He wasn't driven by a desire for stardom, or money. He made little films like 'Gumshoe' at the peak of his career.

He seemed more interested in working on the stage, and sometimes, not working at all. I assume he lived his life unconcerned about stardom, and fame.

He was fantastic in 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning' at the beginning of his career. Many British actors of the next generation were influenced by his work.

We have lost an acting giant, who never thought he was one.

This is sad news. Albert Finney will always have a place on my 'favorites' list because of "Two For The Road." But then I finally watched "Erin Brockovich" for the first time about three years ago, and he was completely wonderful in that one too! Truly an exceptionally intelligent and gifted actor.

Rest in peace, Mr. Finney. Thank you for your wonderful work.

That's too bad. I know he hasn't done a lot lately, but last week we were looking for movie to watch and came across Big Fish.

Had never seen it when it came out (2003), but this is a really good film--date is irrelevant to the story. Albert Finney was great in it--American southern accent and all. Highly recommend it.

Very sad. I also loved his character in Erin Brockovich. Especially at the end when he hands one of her snide remarks right back to her.

"If this is you apologizing, you SUCK at it!" Then gives his wonderful impish "finally gotcha" grins, turns on his heel and walks out the door.

RIP.

Like many women my age, I was introduced to Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks. I had "Annie" on LaserDisc, and my cousin and I wore that movie out. Still one of my favorite musicals ever.

(not sure why I can never get my youtube clips to show up in my post like everyone else. )
