One of my favorite movies, Chariots of Fire. Mr. Ben was
wonderful in it. The music
beautiful..I learned to play it on
the piano. Company always request it. This is for you Mr
Ben, I'm going to play it now as you enjoy your way to Heaven.
Run fast, the Lord is waiting.
RIP. I will miss your great talent.
Can you hear the music?
A big fan, Ebby

Very saddened to learn of Mr. Cross's passing. In addition to his film and television work I was very pleased to have been in London to see him live with Charlton Heston in "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial" at the Queen's Theatre in the mid 1980s. I obtained a poster which I had framed and it hangs proudly in my entertainment room. I extend my sincere condolences to Mr. Cross's family and friends and many fans around the world.
Sincerely, John Yogis, Q.C., Halifax, N.S., Canada.
