Richard Todd, best known for his role in classic war film The Dam Busters, has died at the age of 90, after a battle with cancer.

Todd, a war hero in his own right, was also known for playing dashing heroes like Robin Hood and Rob Roy.

Born in Dublin in 1919, Todd was one of the first British soldiers to parachute into France on D-Day.



RIP Richard Todd I will dig out the film The Dam Busters from my DVD collection and give it a watch in memory of him . I saw The Longest Day on TV or on video once but its long ago that I don't recall specify seeing him in that film .
