Once upon a time, television was very different.
For a week we had what was called “Thames on 9.” It was glorious.
It starred John Hurt.
He was one of the finest actors I’d ever seen.
When it was announced he was cast for the title role in The Elephant Man, I knew it was a movie not to be missed. Only he could have done it. And he did.
Many other roles followed, some just as memorable (you must catch him as Winston Smith in Nineteen Eighty-Four).
And now his time has ended.
Rest in peace. You did magnificent work.
