R.I.P. Actor Richard Johnson

Actor Richard Johnson dies, aged 87

Since he was under exclusive contract to MGM — that’s how movies rolled in those days — he had to decline taking the role of James Bond. Him as James Bond — how that would have changed history!

Gerry Anderson fans will recall him as the husband of Dr. Helena Russell in the Space: 1999 episode, A Matter of Life and Death (available on Hulu).


Rest in peace.
