Celebrity Death Watch: Albert Finney

What a marvelous actor - - my favorite of his movies is *Murder on the Orient Express!* Such a fun movie, and so touching that director Sidney Lumet would hire Finney again for what turned out to be his (Lumet's) last movie, *Before the Devil Knows You're Dead.* Check THAT out if you haven't already, it's a family drama with Ethan Hawke and the late Philip Seymour Hofffman as the brothers and Finney and Rosemary Harris as their parents. Intense movie, and so good.

Here's a cute little interview with Finney when he was quite young. He tells a funny story about going on for Sir Laurence Olivier in *Coriolanus.*
