Sir John Mills is dead at 97. I was going to say here that if you haven't, you absolutely must see him at his witty British best in Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes. Unfortunately, he wasn't in it. That was Michael Redgrave, whose been dead ten years.

Sir John is famous for playing Pip in David Lean's Great Expectations, which is a typically brilliant Lean production of a classic. You absolutely must see it.

But do watch The Lady Vanishes as well.
