Mar. 22, 2012 - Well, I'm Hanged ! They hanged 1962's brightest star: Albert Finney, to the Tyburn of 1745. But it wasn't Marble Arch; it was Bridgeport, Dorset and they were only making a film of Henry Fielding's classic ''Tom Jones''. Albert was strung up - and then, true to the tale rescued by a horseman with a knife to ride away yo freedom and his love. The film costs half a million pounds. Quite an expensive way to half hang an actor of such promise. Photo Shows:- The secret is in the hanging. This harness round Albert's chest prevented it from being too realistic.
