Richard Attenborough was a lord, an Oscar-winning director for the much-lauded "Gandhi" and an unflagging pillar to British cinema. But Attenborough, who died August 24 at 90, was best known as Dickie. Baby-faced as a young actor and whitely bearded in his older age, Attenborough — warmly known as "Dickie Darling" — presided over six decades of British moviemaking as both an actor and filmmaker with a genial warmth that endeared him to his fans and fellow actors. "I have no great interest in being remembered as a great creative filmmaker," he told The New York Times when "Gandhi" was released in 1982. "I want to be remembered as a storyteller." The actor's son, Michael Attenborough, told the BBC that his father had been in poor health for some time.
