Some IDIOTIC ARSEHOLE is removing correct facts about Finney's theatrical carrer. This might be worth including:

Peter Bradshaw Friday February 24, 2006 The Guardian

Albert Finney turned down a knighthood some years ago, remarking: Maybe people in America think being a Sir is a big deal. But I think we should all be misters together.

So apparently being an actor consists of being nominated for and winning awards. Finney appeared in the film NETWORK in 1976

The Wall[edit]

Why is his part in Pnk Floyd The Wall not mentioned? I'd add it myself but i dont know enough about the film. AlmightyClam (talk) 15:50, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Lawrence of Arabia[edit]

In every book and article I have read about David Lean and the making of Lawrence of Arabia, there has never been a mention that Finney quit after four days of shooting. Finney was used in shooting screentests that cost 100,000 pounds. He refused to sign a 7-year-contract required by producer Sam Spiegel, so did not get the role.Shemp Howard, Jr. (talk) 04:07, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

It is no reflection on Finney that the screen tests cost what they did. Is it really notable that he stepped away from the role? Surely this is common in the field.172.10.238.180 (talk) 07:15, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Golden Globes[edit]

First off, as a cineaste, I would not mention the corrupt Golden Globe Awards in any article I would write about the cinema, but setting it apart like it is in this article is ridiculous.Shemp Howard, Jr. (talk) 04:07, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Finney's theatrical career[edit]

This was considerable and merits more than a mere passing mention.
