British cinema has lost one of its finest post-war Actors, with the death at 82 of Albert Finney.
His breakthrough film was his portrayal of Angry Young Man, Arthur Seaton, in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning. And he was never far from the screen for the next fifty years or so, with appearances in movies including Scrooge, Two for the Road with Audrey Hepburn, Poirot in 1974's Murder on the Orient Express, Erin Brockovich and Annie.
He gave so many very different performances - our favourite was as Leo in the Coens' Miller's Crossing, followed closely by Ed Bloom in Tim Burton's Big Fish.
But there are many to choose from, and he will be badly missed.
