James Finlayson (August 27, 1887 – October 9, 1953)

The more magnanimous of my acquaintances tell me if I shifted about 5 stone and grew a ‘tache I’d look a lot like JF. Perhaps they’re right, perhaps they’re wrong; but irrespective I wouldn’t be able to do what he did. Which, needless to say, utterly defies description. To say he used to close one eye and glare gets one not even close.

File under ‘legend’ with all the rest.
