Eagles90,

Thank you for creating this In Memoriam poll for Albert Finney.

It's really hard to choose from so many great performances.

My tentative vote: Scrooge

Many great roles, but my vote will be for The Dresser, which I consider one of the best performances ever.

I think The Gathering Storm should be on the list. It is probably his most acclaimed recent work and it gave him 5 awards, including the Golden Globes and the Emmy, even if it is a tv movie, the question is about his performances and that is one of his best.

No reason for my choice other than I watched it "again" just yesterday.
Erin Brockovich.
It always like the scene at the end when he gives Erin the 2 million dollar check!

Thank you for making such a nice memorial poll. My vote will go to 'The Dresser,' with his 'Miller's Crossing' performance in second place. I've always loved Albert Finney.

Quite sad to hear of his passing, and then just a few days apart another great actor dies, Sergey Yurskiy. Speaking of which, date of death was not added. I'm on it... 

As for my pick, probably Leo in Miller's Crossing (1990). A terrific movie. Also, Finney portrays two characters in the movie, by the way: he also has an odd cameo as a maid in ladies restroom.
