Jim Dale Photo Tribute

Jim Dale will be famous to fantasy fans as the reader of the Harry Potter novels for the American audiene. (Stephen Fry reads the books over in England.)

I've liked him ever since the 70s, when he made 3 Disney movies - Pete's Dragon, Hot Lead and Cold Feet, and Unidentified Flying Oddball, and I saw him live on Broadway in Barnum and, a few years later, Me and My Girl (well, in a sense. I was right back at the very rear of the theater and didn't have opera glasses. He was a blur. But still, I saw him!)

I'm listening to Dale read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and will share thoughts on that later, but for now I'll just share all my photos I'd once collected of Jim Dale.
