Sadly another veteran actor has left us. George Kennedy 91 died Sunday. Great in Airport, and The Naked Gun films
Any film with this man in was worth watching, I especially liked him in the Bob Mitchum film "The Good Guys & the Bad Guys", I
have it on 16mm 'scope, the line where he tells the tale of a guy trying to stop a train ended up with just a grease trail up the track
just kills me, he was frightening in the Clint Eastwood film "Thunderbolt & Lightfoot" as a psycho killer, but lovable in the "Naked Gun"
films where he came out with a classic line "I dunno, they photograph you between the legs of the Queen of England, and they call it news", I'm laughing as I type this, but he delivered it in such a way. He was by all accounts a really nice man, I believe he looked after
his wife or daughter who was ill. R.I.P.. George, you are a star.
It's a case of pick one really, he was in about 200 films, I still have his appearance on "Bilko", my favourite comedy show ( apart from
Frasier ) a very versatile actor really, he could be chilling or the other side of the coin, lovable, anyway Paul, there'll be no more from
George, but he's left a wealth of stuff for us to enjoy, film is eternal after all.
