The 21 Year Old Richard Attenborough
17 November 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

Since his screen debut in 1942, Dickie Attenborough received screen roles each year. His characters were quite insipid, especially when he played panzy young Englishmen who have no relevance to a contemporary audience.
