    Default RIP Peter O'Toole

    Another of the late great actors has also now gone.

    I'll always remember him for the good films like Lawrence of Arabia or the Lion in Winter and the bad films where he still out-acted everyone like High Spirits and Supergirl.

    One of my favorite actors. Between Lion in the Winter and My Favorite Year alone he would be in my pantheon of all time great actors. But what he could bring to small movies like Creator was amazing.

    I think it was My Favourite Year that O'Toole decided to be in after reading the script and there being a reference to a gravestone. The person's date of birth on the gravestone was the same as his own. Having found out that the script wasn't modified specifically for him he took on the role. RIP.
