A providential comment by a new visitor just alerted me to the fact that today, August 11, was the birthdate of Ian Charleson, the beloved actor who brought charismatic Scottish runner Eric Liddell to life for all of us in ‘Chariots of Fire’.

I invite all those who visit this blog today,

– to have a look at the posts I have put up last year in his honor, and

– to join me and the other fans of his who have contributed comments now and then here, for celebrating his memory especially on this occasion of his birthday anniversary…

Cheers! A toast to Ian!…

      I seem to have missed your comment when you posted it – or I have forgotten to reply to it!!! I am sorry about that, please accept my belated apologies!… 🙂

    I have always loved Ian Charleson! This summer, I wrote a tribute to him and my other favorite British actors on my movie blog. I will go back and read the posts you wrote in his honor.
