I recently watched Bridge on the River Kwai, which is a must-see movie if you have not seen it yet.
There’s a scene where Alec Guinness (the original Obi Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars films) gives a little speech about how old he is, and how old he feels, and how there are “less days ahead than there are behind”. And yeah, as you can see from the above photo, he does look somewhat old in this movie. Not an “old man” certainly, but old.
Out of curiosity, I looked up Alec’s age when this movie was filmed (1957). To my shock and awe, I was astounded to discover that in that movie, Alec was just one year older than I am now. He was 43 in this movie…I’m almost 42.
