Zoom It also meant a lot that he played William Cecil, Lord Burghley, in Shekhar Kapur’s Elizabeth. I’ve lived most of my life about 15 mins drive from Burghley House, which he built on his retirement (and which is shaped like an E in homage to his queen), and went to secondary school literally right next door.

For me, of all Richard Attenborough’s many achievements in cinema, the ones with the most personal resonance are his Boulting Brothers comedies. My dad loved these as a young man and my brother and I were raised on them. Of the three films here (and also School for Scoundrels and Lucky Jim in which he didn’t appear), it’s very very rare for our family to go longer than six months without watching one. Dickie was the last of the regular Boulting Bros stars to go, which is going to make our next viewing highly poignant (and probably more drunken than usual).

Top: with Terry-Thomas and Ian Carmichael in Brothers In Law, having an important legal debate

Middle: with Carmichael and Dennis Price in Private’s Progress, undercover to foil/take over a Nazi art heist

Bottom: with Terry-Thomas again in I’m Alright Jack, Private’s Progress's sequel, and as cutting a takedown of capitalism/industry/the trade union movement/the media/celebrity/human nature as has ever been filmed
