Freddie Jones R.I.P

I can’t post pics from my phone so hope someone will put up a nice Firefox still
Great actor with a long and varied career.. Also great in The Elephant Man..

Wherever he is now.. it’d be cool if he’s  taken the black box with him..

Here are a still and a screencap from Firefox:





And a link to his obituary in The Guardian ...
https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/jul/10/freddie-jones-obituary

Quote
Freddie Jones, who has died aged 91, was the best sort of old-fashioned actor, a comic tragedian, eccentric and full-hearted, with something of both Donald Wolfit and Dickens’ Vincent Crummles about him. Indeed, his most famous stage role was that of Ronald Harwood’s affectionate near-portrait of Wolfit in The Dresser (1980), an old ham called “Sir” who faces disaster in the mirror while preparing to play King Lear. And he memorably embodied the extravagant Crummles in a television Nicholas Nickleby of 1977.

R.I.P., Freddie Jones

Thanks KC, cool pic and  nice obituary too.. I usually take The Guardian but must have missed that issue..

Firefox has always held a special place in my heart as it was the first  Eastwood film I saw at the cinema and a pretty cool time in my life also...

Thanks as always  O0
