He`s one of my all time favorite actors, too. He`s handsome and very sophisticated. And he`s one of the best actors. I love his voice.

Peter Finch I liked as an actor, the first film I saw him in when very young was A Town like Alice, and also the Nun`s story which I also liked very much. His affair with Vivien Leigh I think went on for quite awhile, but to my mind the affair was not the only reason the Olivier`s marriage broke up, her illness and the fact that their marriage was very stormy added to the problems I think. I liked Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier he in fact introduced me to Shakespeare through his film of Richard 111. They were all good actors and brought many people pleasure through their films etc.
