George Sanders - Biography (SD)

I stumbled upon this poinant tribute to George Sanders late last night after looking at some 1960s films of George Best, Denis Law and Bobby Charlton scoring marvellous goals for Manchester United.

I found it deeply touching, bound up with the past and its passing. The mood created by the soundtrack, a song called I Remember, and the black and white imagery, makes this a memorable ten minutes.

I didn't know George Sanders killed himself in Barcelona in 1972. Nor did I know that he was born in St Petersburg before the Russian Revolution, went to college in Manchester and later worked in Buenos Aires. I only knew he starred in (at least) two great films: The Private Affairs of Bel Ami (1947) and All About Eve (1950).

Thank you to whoever put this out.
