I watched the old movie, LLOYDS OF LONDON, last night. Again I am convinced there was not another actor who could play a more smug, smarmy role like George Sanders could. In one scene he wears a silk suit and talks with that pompous way that only he could do. You hated him because he was always up to no good.
He committed suicide at age 65 and left an ill-considered note that said he was bored and was only anticipating his death by a few years.
