A great movie director, and a real character. I'll miss his acerbic wit.
Film director and newspaper columnist Michael Winner has died, aged 77, his wife Geraldine has confirmed.
Born in Hampstead, London in 1935, he directed more than 30 films, including Death Wish and Scorpio.
RIP Michael Winner [bbc.co.uk]
