Ireland's Own Richard Harris

Ireland's Own Richard Harris


In Limerick, the Irish city where Richard Harris was born and raised, they still call him "Dickie." And while 12 years have passed since the legendary actor died Oct. 25, 2002, at 72, he is still very much a presence there. The town will welcome thousands of visitors this weekend (Oct. 24 - 26) for the second annual Richard Harris International Film Festival. Eleanor McSherry, the festival's creative director, spoke to Legacy.com about one of Limerick's favorite sons.

Michael Crichton's Lost World

Michael Crichton's Lost World


Michael Crichton, who died Nov. 4, 2008, was a man of many talents: novelist, medical doctor, screenwriter, producer and director, to name a few. His novels have sold more than 200 million copies worldwide, several becoming popular films such as "The Andromeda Strain," "Disclosure" and "Jurassic Park," one of the all-time top-grossing films. He is remembered largely for his thrillers and science fiction work, but one of his most successful creations was the long-running medical drama "ER," which Crichton created and produced from a script he originally wrote in 1974. He courted controversy later in life regarding climate change, but his novels, films and television work remain popular with fans today. See what others on the Internet are saying now about Crichton's life and career, and view and sign his Guest Book.
