RIP. John Wilson

Richmond player #599, U19s 1958 premiership team, played in the same team as Tommy.

A great gentleman, mentor to many, and a true Tiger.

RIP Bill Collins. He was one of my gateways into good movies. He had kind of a staid persona but played a lot of genuinely great films.

Same here. Always liked his preview of films on Ch 10 (long time ago) and then Fox Classics.

Remembering his 'larger' frame from before to a meagre one nowadays, easily shows how a person's health declines. Sad to see this.

RIP Bill.

Have others heard the hilarious interview when 3AW called the wrong bill Collins to discuss a particular movie. Took several minutes for them to work out they were speaking to the race caller...

I too loved Bill’s movie reviews. Helped form my viewing preferences.
