Richard Attenborough - A legend laid to rest

 

Today when I opened up my news page, what I read was a unpleasant shock. Richard Attenborough, known to most as John Hammond, died yesterday at the age of 90.

With a lot of buzz around the upcoming Jurassic World (sequel to Jurassic Park series) many (including me) where hoping of a cameo by the gentle Mr Hammond. Alas, it seems he has had the last laugh. The other movie I have enjoyed him in , is the 1963 war filmthe Great Escape.

Looking at Wikipedia traffic, Richard’s bio page has got heavy traffic today.
