Room x37 – Spotting Syncs 101: A Pointless Exercise Part 4 – Tête-à-Tête

Before I get into the next round of this Pointless Exercise, just a word about the actor Alan Rickman, who died yesterday.

I can confirm that he did knot feature on Thoughtful Man’s ‘CD of Death‘. However, I did meet him, briefly, in the early 90s when I accidentally stepped on his foot whilst collecting my tickets at the Criterion theatre box-office, for that evening’s performance of ‘Misery‘.

He was very gracious when I turned to apologise; it made my night seeing Hans Gruber and the Sheriff of Nottingham in the flesh.

Anyhoo… let’s get on with the post…

    1. Absolutely, JP. For me he redefined the movie villain in blockbuster films that would follow:

      I went to see Die Hard with my mum at Leicester Square, on a cold and wet Sunday afternoon in November. When we emerged from the dark, into the dark afterwards, I felt all toasty inside. I absolutely loved all the action and one liners, but the line I liked the best was delivered by Hans Gruber…

      Tbh, as much as a enjoyed the Die Hard movies that followed, they were never quite as good because Alan Rickman wasn’t in them.
