Paul Scofield has died

Paul Scofield has passed away at 86.  I just watched him play Sir Thomas More the other day in "A Man for All Seasons."

Dan:
Another less recognized role for him (but none the less riveting) was the German general trying to abscond with the art treasures of Paris in the movie: THE TRAIN (w/Burt Lancaster).

Truly one of the last REAL screen icons with such a diverse range of acting abilities.

Thanks, Bobby... I have not seen "The Train" and will have to look it up. I like Lancaster, too, though he's not the actor Scofield was.
