Happy Birthday Alec Guinness, here’s you telling a weird story!

Published: 2nd Apr, 2009

A strange premonition…

Had he not died nine years ago when the cancer got him, Alec Guinness would be turning a very majestic 95 today, and what a life. He fought in wars, starred in films, and then was in Star Wars – a series of movies, incidentally, that he hated. No matter, we thought we’d get him a gift, and after a night spent arguing in a jacuzzi, it boiled down to a toss up between a great big poster of Christina Aguilera, or an old clip of Sir Alec telling Parkinson that he pretty much saw James Dean’s death coming. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Obi-Wan!
