The grandfather of Hollywood , Sir Richard Samuel Attenborough has passed away on 24th Aug at the age of 90. He has made the classic "Gandhi" and acted on numerous films. I can remember him as the scientist of Jurassic Park. May his soul rest in peace.
Attenborough certainly had a very long and illustrious life in the movies. Although he was involved in many American movies for me he was much too British in culture and politics to qualify for direct Hollywood family. I remember the Chaplin movie he directed - that was a brilliant movie.
