The man was a great actor and played some iconic roles such as Kane, Joseph Merrick, Winston Smith and Quentin Crisp. I watched Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull again recently and I always forget he is in that movie.
He was also probably the last of the great hell-raising actors these islands have produced.
I saw generals create imaginary "masses of manoeuvre" with a crayon and dispose of enemy concentrations, that were on the ground and on the map, with an eraser. Who was I to criticise them, hero as I was of a hundred "Chinagraph wars" of make-believe?
