The 28 Year Old Richard Attenborough
17 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Although Dickie Attenborough was developing as an actor at this stage in his career, he was relying on his friend, John Mills, to furnish him with roles. He plays a mediocre character in this film which makes me think that he is going sideways rather than progressing as an actor.
