Richard Attenborough

Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer have offered their tributes to the late actor and director

Christopher Plummer: I’m privileged to have known and worked with Richard Attenborough, a great British character actor of enormous range, a talented and devoted director, a caring, passionate, gentle and very dear man. I shall miss him dreadfully.

Shirley MacLaine: He made the world a better place. I wish he would come back. Even God is blessed to have him.

I have a wonderful idea, Georg. Let’s really fill this house with music. You must give a grand and glorious party for me while I’m here.

HAL:

You always wanted to hold my hand when you were little. 
I couldn't, you know. 
I was afraid it would look funny. 
I wanted to be close, you know and my father certainly
was never close with me. 
God, I hope I wasn't like that.
