Britain is no longer a country for and says "Farewell" and "Thankyou" to an old actor called Albert Finney

Albert, whose has died at the age of 82, left us with a legacy of stage and screen performances which have provided us with entertainment over the last 60 years. When he was 27, back in 1963, he took the title role in the Tony Richardson film, 'Tom Jones,' based on the novel by Henry Fielding, written in 1749. The film contained the wonderfully lascivious banquet scene played between Albert and the late Diane Cilento and 54 years later it has lost none of its power to make us smile at his prodigious talent.

"Heroes, whatever high ideals we may have of them, are mortal and not divine. We are all, as God made us and many of us, much worse."   
From John Osborne's screenplay
