    I didn't exactly follow his career, but I always enjoy what he brings to the screen. I really enjoyed his performance in Big Fish. He was the right man for that part.

    Well lived, sir. And thank you!

    Ah, that explains why Turner Classic Movies was playing an unscheduled taping of Tom Jones this morning.

    I've always had a fondness for Finney's roles and acting. He was fantastic in Erin Brockovich, but there are so many other roles over the years that I have enjoyed him in. And then there were the uniquely English films of which there were many when he was a young man. You don't see them often here in the States, but one that comes to mind is Saturday Night, Sunday Morning. I will miss him.

    I love this scene from "Erin Brokovich." Finney's reaction to the flunky's veiled threat was hilarious.

    Loved how he messed with Julia Roberts at the end of Erin Brockovich.

    He portrayed Sir Winston Churchill in a movie just a few years ago.

    He nailed it.
    Spot on.

    Shoot The Moon has always been a personal favorite... I should probably revisit it soon.
