Sadly another veteran actor has left us. George Kennedy 91 died Sunday. Great in Airport, and The Naked Gun films


I still love the smell of film in the morning

Ah, no. I loved him. He had something about him. R.I.P. Saw him first in Airport '80 The Concorde

Will be missed

How sad, great in the dirty dozen, R.I.P .

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.

Forgot that one Hugh, that's a good film with Clint too, and Jeff bridges, rumbles along nicely.

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.

Very Sad. One of my favourite actors, serious or comedy he was brilliant. Very much enjoyed Thunderbolt and Lightfoot and the Eiger Sanction.
