RICHARD TODD 1919-2009

Nice tribute from SparkyGerbil on YouTube to British actor and War Hero, Richard Todd, who starred in the classic THE DAM BUSTERS, Hitchcock's STAGEFRIGHT, Disney's THE STORY OF ROBIN HOOD and with Ronald Reagan in THE HASTY HEART. Todd was also one of the first troops to parachute into France on D-Day 1944 and one of the Paratroopers who held Pegasus Bridge. This event was recreated in the film THE LONGEST DAY with Todd playing one of his own commanding officers. R.I.P.
