Film greats SIR Ben Kingsley and LORD Richard Attenborough paid tribute to
late actor SIR Peter Ustinov at a memorial service in London yesterday
OSCAR-winner Ustinov passed away in March (04) after suffering heart
failure. A month later (APR04) he was buried in Bursins, Switzerland - his
hometown for 33 years.
At a star-studded service in St-Martin-In-The-Fields, Attenborough,
Kingsley, SIR David Frost, Michael Parkinson and Terence Stamp listened to
Ustinov's daughter TAMARA read an extract from her father's play THE LOVE OF
English chat show host Parkinson laments, "He was a remarkable man, a
really lovely man - God's gift to talk show hosts."
Stamp says, "The strength of his presence was such that all the things I
wanted to say were squashed in my throat."
