George Sanders

GEORGE SANDERS d1972. Russian born English film & television actor, singer-songwriter, music composer and author. His extremely heavy English accent and baritone voice often led him to be cast as sophisticated but villainous characters. He is best known for playing Addison DeWitt in "All About Eve" (1950) / Jack Favell in "Rebecca" (1940) and the malevolent tiger Shere Khan in "The Jungle Book" (1967). On 23rd April 1972, he checked into a hotel in a coastal town near Barcelona Spain. He was found dead two days later, having taken five bottles of Nembutal. Aged 65 he left a suicide note which read ; "Dear World, I am leaving because I am bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool. Good luck". David Niven wrote in his 1972 autobiography "The Moon's A Balloon" that in 1937, his friend George Sanders had predicted he would commit suicide at the age of 65
