I didn't know the director if Bullitt also directed Summer Holiday. The Hot Rock is on film4 this afternoon and is a decent caper movie.

That is genuinely sad. The sequence at the end of Band of Brothers where they run through all the surviving members of Easy Company, with Damian Lewis narrating as Winters, is one of the most moving and wonderful sequences of television ever.

What a tremendous loss he is, really. Having watched some interviews with him, he was one of the humblest men I've ever seen, refusing to take credit for his incredible service in WW2 and always crediting others for the roles they played. Clearly a real leader of men and a marvellously decorated soldier, it's only when people like him pass on that you realise, once again and perhaps most strongly, the magnitude of their contribution to and sacrifice for the world as we know it. Having seen such horrible stuff during the war, you have to hope that if there's peace to be had hereafter, he finds it.

Also, this video never fails to move me, a fitting testament to what Winters & his men went through, and what they thought of one another.

I was going to post something like that this evening, but you've pretty much summed up what I was going to say.

A very modest man, who always maintained that he was just doing his job.

Very sorry to hear he has passed away.

To be honest, it's a long time since I last saw it.

I always thought it was "Afghanistan bananstan". I think that sounds better so I'm still going to use that as my safe word.

Indeed, but happy that he lived such a long life as well. What a gentleman.

Shurely. Having rewatched it all recently, I concur. Crying ensued.

Considering the body count around him - damn damn lucky indeed.

I too have shed a tear or two over that. I think, after watching the whole series, it was just out of relief that some of them made it to the end of the war!

When he talks about George Luz's funeral, and the sheer number of people who turned up for it, I always find myself man-coughing.

Spoilered in case some people haven't seen the series. Also, if you haven't seen it, SHAME ON YOU.

This is very sad news indeed, and especially poignant as I only started watching Band of Brothers for the first time at the weekend (having purchased the DVD box set on 2nd January, of all days).
