Richard Todd, 1919-2009

Richard Todd in 'The Dam Busters'

I just read the news that Richard Todd, who played the lead role in the great British war movie The Dam Busters, has died at the age of 90. The real-life Todd served in World War II, taking part in the D-Day invasion, before making a movie about that day, D-Day, the Sixth of June. Todd made several other movies at Fox in the US, but will probably be best remembered for The Dam Busters.
