It always seemed like a battle of who was better or more popular from The Great Mouse Detective
: Basil of Baker Street or Professor Ratigan? Going by the status of the actor, Vincent Price wins several times over due to his background as a horror film legend. Barrie's background is plays, Shakespeare, and Broadway musicals along with doing a few TV guest appearances during the eighties. This makes his Facebook page suffer a bit too much. Vincent's page currently has 1,113 Likes, Barrie has 26. Can we change that or are we going to continue ignoring this British actor, the same one who voiced a fantastic and memorable Disney character?
For the record, Barrie Ingham is still very much alive at 80 years young. He's semiretired now, focusing on a few projects of his own plus teaching theater courses at the Society of the Four Arts. If you love Basil, The Great Mouse Detective
movie, or both, show your support for Barrie by hitting Like at his Facebook page and doing a shout out to him. I think he would really appreciate it.
