One of my favorite actors, and star of three of my favorite movies (Becket, The Lion in Winter, Lawrence of Arabia) passed today, aged 81. One of the greatest actors of all time. And a very intelligent, witty fellow. A few of my friends have met him and he always said something really clever to them each time. He was a true artist.
Here’s a great chat between O’Toole and Orson Welles on Hamlet.
