Yes, a sad loss. My favourite film starring him was Day Of The Jackal, which I can still watch and enjoy now.
I didn't know until 10 minutes ago that he was born above The Trocadero pub in Temple Street! That particular hostelry had a certain, er, reputation back in the 60's and 70's, but it was still a great place to start off a Saturday night!
Very much enjoyed watching "Operation Amsterdam" where Tony Britton played the part of a British agent trying to smuggle diamonds out of Amsterdam, 1940, before the Germans moved in. I also saw him live at the Birmingham Hippodrome, on September 12th 1964, where he was the Henry Higgins character in "My Fair Lady". Dave
1964 was Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady in Birmingham. Could have been at "The Alex". ps Just seen farmerdave's post above so it was "The Hippodrome". I understand Tony Britton was born above "The Troc" in Temple St.
