I try to find photos/images that are like 300x300 in size before attaching.  I say that in light of ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 

SC and all big photo people - you do know that you can resize the photos once you have pasted them into the post?

So photo of Dietrich from above cut and pasted into this post - double click on photo gives you option to resize.

 

Reduce width down to something sensible like 120, aspect box is ticked so photo retains it's integrity and hey presto Dietrich is now from Lilliput and not Jupiter.

On this day in the year 2000 distinguished British actor of stage and screen John Gielgud died in Aylesbury aged 96.

Gielguds acting career spanned over 8 decade's and was one of a handful of actors who dominated the British stage in the 20th century along with Laurence Olivier and Ralph Richardson. 

 

He was primarily known for his gifts as a Shakespearen actor and was said by many critics to have been the best Hamlet there ever was on British stage such was his gift for nuance and subtlety. 

 

He also was a gifted theatre director and now has a London West End Theatre named after him hence The Gielgud theatre. 

 

He also starred in a number of notable films including Arthur, The Elephant man and Gandhi. 

One of the most respected actors of his generation.
