Albert Finney, the esteemed British actor and five-time Oscar nominee known for his shape-shifting work in Tom Jones, The Dresser, Murder on the Orient Express and Erin Brockovich, has died. He was 82.
Finney's family told the Associated Press on Friday that he "passed away peacefully after a short illness with those closest to him by his side." The actor was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2007.
I have watched Two for the road to pay tribute to Finney after his death, and now I'm learning Stanley Donen just passed away...
Also Two for the road is a wonderful film. Thank you Donen, Finney and also Hepburn and Mancini for everything.
