My Mum once told me that the actor Albert Finney (of: Erin Brockovich, Annie, Night Must Fall, Two for the Road, Murder on the Orient Express...) lived in Urmston and I've once seen him at the Hayeswater Circle.

Albert Finney did not actually live on Bedford road but either his Aunt or his Grandmother did.

Albert Finney definitely went to Salford Grammar, I know because I followed him there and was in the same drama group there after he had just left the school. he used to live on Chandos Grove Salford near Buille Hill Park. His sister lives on Bedford Rd. Davyhulme, and we have seen him pass our window there when he has visited.

When I was about 10 or 11 around 1968 Dad said to me "watch this great film, you will learn something about the reality of life and its hardships" I did and I was spellbound. It was Saturday night Sunday morning and even today I still have a deep routed affection for this 1960 classic.
