AMC is now going to have to find a way to squeeze showings of The Great Escape, A Bridge Too Far and Ghandi in between its Toys, Popeye and Mrs. Doubtfire schedule. And with the Emmys tomorrow, they have to re-write the death thing, stop dying, people.

I didn't recognize the name, but when I saw the face I realized who it was.

So I guess this starts a new Trifecta?

Also nice one Subby.

Wasn't he knighted? I though he's Sir Richard Attenborough?
 
2014-08-24 08:24:07 PM  
When David goes, I will be devastated. His documentary narration was the food that nourished my growing mind. Richard was great as well, and obviously as a kid, loved him in Jurassic Park.

I'll miss his nature documentaries.  They were some of the best.

The Great Escape

came out when I was 11 years old. My best friend's older brother was an usher at a theater 3 miles from where we lived and we would ride our bikes there and use free passes to see that film easily 20 times. Of course every bike trip to and from the theater we jumped curbs and small hills as if we were Steve McQueen riding his motorcycle across the German countryside.

One of the great bits of trivia about that movie is that not only does Steve McQueen ride his own motorcycle, he also plays one of the pursuing German motorcyclists. At one point, thanks to the magic of editing, you can see him pursuing himself.

Also, Dickie Attenborough was awesome and will be much missed.

I always wish in Jurassic Park he would have made the joke  "The voice you're hearing is Richard Attenborough, we've spared no expense"

McQueen strings a wire across the road to steal a German motorcycle. McQueen himself played the German motorcyclist who hits the wire. McQueen did his own riding but the studio would not allow him to make the famous 60-foot jump over the fence. That was done by Bud Elkins, a friend of McQueen's.

He died at lunchtime on Sunday, his son told BBC News.

And British cuisine claims another life.

The really dangerous Sting Rays with the testicle crushing gear shift or the later safer Sting Rays with the handle bar mount?

/Had the safer one hand me down from my brother born in 70
