RON MOODY




Ron Moody died today at 91.  He is best remembered as Fagin in Oliver! (1968) but his CV beyond that famous role is very impressive.  Here's his IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0600531/?ref_=nv_sr_1



In 1980, he published a novel - The Devil You Don't - which I read and enjoyed.  I recall that it was a crime/ story within the nuclear power industry.

The Devil You Don't (Paperback)

After I read the book, I wrote to Ron Moody and he sent me an autographed photograph.  On the back he wrote:

Dear Joe,

Thank you for the appreciation of my work.  I like to think that what I think makes other people think - I think!

All best wishes,

Ron.

RIP, sir!
