Richard Attenborough, RIP

082514-Richard-Attenborough-hed

Yesterday the world lost a lion of cinema, Richard Attenborough.

He was an actor, a director, a naturalist, a philanthropist and a bona fide Right Honorable Lord. He headlined alongside Steve McQueen in The Great Escape, played Santa in Miracle on 34th Street, was an eccentric billionaire in Jurassic Park, directed Ben Kingsley in the Oscar-sweeping epic Gandhi, narrated nature documentaries, served as director of soccer club Chelsea F.C.—and the list of triumphs goes on and on...
