Security: Public
Location:the utility room in the sky
Music:the alan parsons project
Arthur C Clarke.
Anthony Minghella.
Paul Scofield.
Brian Wilde.

The great tragedy here, of course, is Minghella, who was already a terrific director and would only have got better, and who died much too young. What a week.
Brian Wilde won't mean anything to the villagers on the other side of the village pond, but trust me, those who saw him work know how good he was at what he did. I think he was the last of the surviving central cast of Porridge.

BTW, I really, really like that icon. Would you allow me to use it? If not, I understand.

My mother who only went to NYC once saw Paul Scofield in "A Man for All Seasons" on Broadway in 1960. A girlfriend of hers took her there as a bit of a vacation before me, the 6th in 9 years, arrived. They went to see musicals (Sound of Music, Unsinkable Molly Brown, and Most Happy Fella). It was a fluke that they ended tickets for a straight play. It changed her complete perception of theater. Oh how she loved Paul Scofield for it! (Mom and "Auntie Alice" ended up as contestants on "Who Do You Trust" with a young upstart named Johnny Carson as the emcee. After being teased mercilessly for having 10 kids between them, they wiped the floor with their answers and paid for their big trip to NYC with the winnings.)

Blessings and peace be on those souls who have passed from this life leaving memories of laughter and tears.

I never saw Scofield live, and though I'm not generally a theatregoer I've always regretted it. I never managed to get tickets for Patrick Stewart's Macbeth last year, and I really regret that.
