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."

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.
