We're were just talking about all of the old movie stars who are still alive, and Richard's name poped up. He was great in just about all the roles he was in. He had that strange effect on folks, similar to Johnny Carson: a calming and soothing effect. I realize some of the folks on Livejournal do not have a clue who he is. Go watch any of the movies he's in. I'm sure Turner Classic Movies will have a special on him some time yet this week.
