Nicol Williamson (1938-2011)

when I saw him in "Inadmissible Evidence" he was the prince of Broadway. & a colorful character -- having sluggd producer David Merrick during the tryout.

Williamson was in films for over 40 years playing roles as famous as Sherlock Holmes & Little John.

but when he died in Amsterdam last month he reportedly was broke. & his death is just being reveald now.

yet another example of how fleeting is fame.
