Happy Birthday, Cyril Ritchard!

Cyril Ritchard was born this day, 1 December, 1897, in Sydney, Australia. He died in 1977, before many of you were born, but to my generation, he was the quintessential Captain Hook.

Looking back, he may have given at least a little inspiration to Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow!

Just a small remembrance for some of you old timers in the audience.

R.I.P. Mr. Ritchard!
