This is sad news. "Breaker Morant" is one of my favorite movies. Edward Woodward was an marvelous and underrated actor.

That's a fine movie, all right.

I thought the original version of "The Wicker Man" was a great movie of horror and suspense, but I found it so disturbing I'd never see it again. Not that I need to - it's still burned into my memory.

It wasn't until the final credits of "Hot Fuzz" that I realized he was in that movie; Time had certainly left its mark.

But being a TV Univese guy, it's for the role of McCall that I'll remember him. "The Equalizer" was probably the best depiction of NYC in the 1980s..... Godspeed.
