Stage and screen has lost

Stage and screen has lost another fine actor this year: Alan Bates. He died this morning after his long battle with cancer.

He won a best actor Tony Award in 2002 for his portrayal on Broadway of an impoverished nobleman in "Fortune's Fool," Ivan Turgenev's dissection of mid-19th century Russian country life. I also thought he was great in 2001's "Gosford Park."

He was knighted last year.
