John Neville 1925-2011

I'm very saddened to hear that John Neville, the star of my all-time favorite film The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, passed away over the weekend. I've seen him in a few other movies (A Study in Terror, Little Women, The Fifth Element), but he was primarily a stage actor. But his Karl Friedrich Hieronymous Baron von Munchausen affected me like nothing else. Thank you, sir, for this magnificent performance in a magnificent film that will affect me all my life.
