Baron Munchausen, John Neville, Has Died. (Or Has He?)

I'm a little late on this one so I'm sure that most Shakespeare fans now know that legendary Shakespearean actor John Neville has died at 86 from Alzheimer's.

Since Mr. Neville's got too many Shakespeare credits for me to even mention (see the article for the highlights), instead I'll remind people of Terry Gilliam's wonderful The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, a fantastic tale in which you're just not quite ever sure whether the good Baron (played by our Mr. Neville) is ever really dead after all ...

Flights of angels, Mr. Neville.  RIP.
