    Just so happens that Richard Widmark’s birth place, Sunrise, Minnesota, is about 14 miles from where I live in Minnesota. There is a gentleman who lives in Sunrise that has a little musuem dedicated to Richard Widmark. He has quite a few items that relate to Widmark, and even some he received directly from Mr. Widmark personally when he visited him at his home. Sunrise is approximately an hour North of the Twin City Metro Area.

    Richard Widmark one of my favourite actor had a most distinctive laughter, which he demonstrated in a movie when he pushed a person down a flight of stairs. Altho he played a less then upright character in some of his roles, the man was truly a gentleman RIP.
