Saturday Night and Sunday Morning is one of the best films that I have ever watched, several times over. Johnny Dankworth's incidental music was great throughout it too.

Albert Finney was like a proper actor without being effete.You could believe he was a turnner or he went fishing and rode a bike.But he could do Shakespeare too when asked.One of his finest moments was in Erin Brokervich,he played the slightly washed out errasible lawyer very well.Also it was the first film I saw of Julia Roberts that it dawned on me she could actually act.I think he will be missed in the film industry.Directors and Producers will be saying'What we need is an Albert Finney type'and he'll no' be around.

What a screen presence he was - a British Brando (and one that never got immensely fat, went mental and killed his daughter’s fella).

Saturday Night Sunday morning - what a film.

The man was some talent. One of those actors who could play any character and make it convincing.

One of his roles that seems to fly under the radar is mob boss Leo O'Bannan in Millers Crossing. Great supporting role in a marvellous film.

I never watched the film all the way through,I saw the first five or so minutes.I presume my dad wasn't gay as he produced me, my two brothers and sister.But he was informed that two of his sons were bisexual if that's any good to you.

ok sorry, over sensitivity on my part.
You had said you didn’t stay up to watch it then posted it reminded you of your old man (without realising the storyline! )
I chuckled then posted,:D
