Actor Ron Moody, who played Fagin in the 1968 movie version of OLIVER!, has died at the age of 91.

 

Moody was Oscar-nominated for his role in Carol Reed's musical adaptation of the Dickens classic, and won a Golden Globe for the performance.

 

In a career that spanned several decades, Moody is also well remembered for his turn as Merlin in the Disney's A KID IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT (1995).

 

Moody was also quite memorable in Mel Brooks' THE TWELVE CHAIRS (1970). I also cannot fail to mention his entertaining role opposite Margaret Rutherford's Miss Marple in MURDER MOST FOUL (1964).

Cripes!  I didn't even KNOW about Christopher Lee!

 

Moody was good, too.  didn't like OLIVER, but his appearances in other movies were good ones.

 

As for Lee, WHO can deny that VOICE?  I also recall his hilarious appearance on SNL in the '70's.
