A bad day in Avengerdom, Ron always had a twinkle in his eye.
I always laugh when he dodderingly points Emma's revolver at her after she hands it to him and orders, "Use it!"
She then turns the gun to point at Robin and barks, "On him!" then rushes off.
Superbly underplayed.

What a miserable day losing both actors. Ron Moody sang the best song in Oliver hands down. Such a comic we will never see again. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

He actually studied at the London School of Economics and planned on becoming a sociologist. good thing he changed his mind on career paths or we would never have seen such a great Fagin.
