Alan Rickman RIP

 Snapes in Harry Potter, and of course Die Hard, but I thought this was one of his best rolls...

Mark Steyn: Gives an excellent obituary for Alan Rickman, I did not know he was partially responsible for My Name is Rachel Corrie (I very much liked Rickman's work, but I loathed that play), but Mark addresses that too


  1. Rickman was a favorite of mine. I think he played Snape very well, and I had no idea for many years that Die Hard was his first movie role. I was also ignorant of his age. I just didn't think he was over 60.

    MSN had a clickbait scroll of some of his roles. He looked the part as Ronald Reagan in The Butler.
