Lord Richard Attenborough 1923 - 2014 R.I.P.

Richard Attenborough as Lew Moran from Flight Of The Phoenix, 1965.

They always go in 3's, so it seems. First Robin Williams, then Lauren Bacall, and now Lord Richard Attenborough.  He is probably most well known, to people under age 30, for portraying Richard Hammond in the Jurassic Park films.  He has been acting for many many years.  He was also the accomplished director of many great films including A Bridge Too Far, Gandhi, and Chaplin.  He won two Academy Awards for Gandhi.  Richard is survived by his wife of nearly 70 years, Sheila Sim and his younger brother David Attenborough, well known for narrating excellent nature documentaries such as Planet Earth.   He is one of the most accomplished British filmmakers and actors ever.   Richard Attenborough had a long and eventful life.

Film director Colin Trevorrow recently tweeted his own homage from the set of his new film 
Jurassic World.
"In Memoriam."
