One of the few to die to make me sad. Really liked him as an actor. Hobson's choice when he finally stands up to his wife, then quickly looks for her approval. Brilliant. A great actor. The profession has lost one of it's best!
It makes me cry just thinking about him, even when he was alive. The footage I saw in the last few years of him and his wife just epitomised what love and marriage can be all about; they were just devoted to one another. They renewed their vows quite recently and it was one of the most moving things about someone's relationship I've ever seen.
Actually he wasn't really such a gentleman. My FIL used to be good friends with him, and still was after he (FIL) divorced MIL. But when FIL married a black Bajan who JM thought was a gold digger (though she wasn't at all) JM cut him out of his social circle completely, and bad mouthed F & SMIL to a number of mutual friends
