RIP Richard Todd (1919-2009)

 Irish actor Richard Todd died yesterday.  All these actors born in the teens are disappearing.  I first saw him in A Man Called Peter when I was in high school.  A few months ago I saw him in Alfred Hitchcock’s Stage Fright and The Hasty Heart.  I highly recommend The Hasty Heart. The Dam Busters and The Longest Day are also two of his most famous WW2 films.  He certainly was a gifted actor. He was also  World War 2 veteran. Unfortunately he lost 2 of his sons to suicide.

Here the veteran speaks about D-Day
