FRANCIS MATTHEWS - ALIAS CAPTAIN SCARLET - PASSES AWAY...
It would've been nice if actor FRANCIS MATTHEWS could've
been as indestructible as his puppet persona CAPTAIN SCARLET,
but, alas, 'twas not to be. Mr. Matthews died today at the age of 86,
and, to his family and friends, the world is suddenly a sadder place -
as well as to those who grew up watching GERRY ANDERSON's
supermarionation programmes on TV.
Today, Spectrum is blue. A fine actor has returned to
'Cloudbase', but his legacy is surely indestructible.
