Let us know praise…

al…. Alan Rickman, giant of acting, who stopped performing in this world in January.  Rickamn was a talented  Shakespearean who had no qualms about taking roles in popular films, from the terrorist Hans Gruber in Die Hard to  Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series.  The library just added two of Rickman’s lesser know films. Bottle Shock is based on the 1976 wine competition  (the “Judgment of Paris”) is which California wines defeated those from France in a blind taste test. Something the Lord Made is a drama about the complex relationship between surgeon Alfred Blalock and his black assistant, cardiologist Vivien Thomas, who together pioneered heart surgery.
