FRANCIS “FRANK” FINLAY 1926-2016

This weekend we lost wonderful British character actor Frank Finlay. Most known to horror fans from Tobe Hooper’s Lifeforce and in my opinion, as one of the best Van Helsing portrayals in the 1977 BBC Count Dracula adaptation with Louis Jourdan as Dracula. To other movie fans he was beloved as Porthos in the classic 70s Three and Four Musketeers with Christopher Lee and Oliver Reed and starred along with Richard Burton and Roger Moore in the 1978 action epic The Wild Geeseas a cantankerous missionary. A theater trained actor, who also worked on British television, with a career spanning five decades and 60 films…many classics! He passed away in his home at 89 years-old.

  1. Great blog you have here 🙂 I am a huge fan of horror films as well 🙂 To stay on topic though, it is really sad that Frank Finlay has died 😦 Did you know he played Jacob Marley in the 1984 George C. Scott version of A Christmas Carol? I am pretty sure you did, I just felt like bringing it up 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always and If you want to visit my site (even though it pales in comparison to this), it is cinematiccoffee.com 🙂 And once again, keep up the great work as always 🙂
