R.I.P. Michael Gough: 1916-2011

Michael Gough in Horror of Dracula 
Brilliant British character actor Michael Gough passed away today at the age of 94.  Although best remembered by American movie-goers as Alfred Pennyworth in Tim Burton's and Joel Schumacher's Batman films, Gough's career spanned 62 years and he contributed enormously to countless films.  From numerous roles in Hammer Horror pictures, to recent voice-over work in the likes of The Corpse Bride, Gough's mannered British charm was always a delight.  He will be missed.

Both of us here at Spellbound Cinema send our best wishes and sincerest condolences to his family and loved ones, especially his wife Henrietta.
