The 26 Year Old Richard Attenborough
17 November 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

There was an honesty and an integrity in the way that Dickie Attenborough portrayed his role in this film. He demonstrated that he could capture a character well and bring him to life in a film. He was certainly developing as an actor by this stage in his career.
