Richard Harris, who loved a good drink-up, would have been turning 77 today, had Hodgkin’s Disease not snaffled him in 2002, but even so, he had a pretty good life. He was in loads of films, he sniffed this, slurped that, prodded them, licked those, slept with her, and probably her, starred in that, and once wore a pair of them.

In the end we got him both. Happy etc…
