Richard Harris Facts
Received an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Scranton in 1987.

Was a pretty good rugby player in his day, still remembered in Limerick City for his tackling ability.

He spent the last 12 years of his life living in Room 758 at the world-famous Savoy Hotel in London. His room was located in the "Courtside" section of the hotel. It did have a view of the river, but not as fine a view as the "Hotel" section riverside rooms. He only had his room cleaned once a week and very rarely notified the hotel that he was out of his room, so they had to check his door ten times a day to see if his "Do Not Disturb" sign flipped around to say "Make Up My Room".
