R.I.P. a great pioneer well ahead of his time and a grandfather of modern cinematography.
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
