RIP Albert Finney (1936-2019)

Rest in peace Albert Finney, one of the great actors of the 20th Century. Charlie Bubbles (1968), written by another Salford-born hero of mine, Shelagh Delaney (below), remains one of my Top 10 all-time movies. It was set in Salford, Lancashire.

I never heard of him until the announcement of his death.

It's uncanny how you can find pictures of anybody sitting at a typewriter. In this case, Finney is sitting at an Olivetti Editor 2! (My post)
