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
