Harve Presnell - 1933-2009

The last of our updates for the day today, as we feel it’s only prudent to mention the passing of yet another screen legend, the wonderful Harve Presnell. Most of you won’t know the name, but you’ll know the voice and face if you enjoyed Saving Private Ryan.
Presnell played General George C Marshall in Ryan, who reads the letter from Abraham Lincoln to Mrs Bixby (convincing his fellow officers that the mission to save Ryan is a valid one). Presnell also starred in the stage production of Annie, as Daddy Warbucks , sang a song in Paint Your Wagon, and small roles in Fargo, Dawsons Creek and Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman.
Harve Presnell was 75.

Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman.

As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney’s love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
