R.I.P. Edward Woodward

Edward Woodward, probably best known as the star of "The Equalizer," has passed on. I remember him best as the chaste and pious policeman researching the missing girl in the cult classic, The Wicker Man; he was also the star of Breaker Morant, which has sat too long in my queue. I'm bumping it to the top.

He was also in the recently reviewed Sitting Target as Inspector Milton, who's chasing down Ollie and Ian, the escaped convicts. He doesn't get much time, but he had the kind of face you remember, and certainly looked the stymied policeman, as he silently contemplated the carnage the boyos left in their wake.

Let me know when you are watching Breaker Morant. It's one of my favorites. A good drama about choices during counter-insurgency warfare, without the usual crap you get in Vietnam movies. ;)
