A great actor I saw once on stage and many times on film :(

I'm changing my viewing plans for the evening to be Lawrence of Arabia
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

RIP Peter.

Pathetically, I have only watched one of his performances: as the Pope in The Tudors. Shame about that. :(

RIP. :(

One of my favourite anecdotes about a great actor;

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

And Joan Fontaine has died, too.

There was a lovely bit on radio this morning where he was telling how he got drunk during filming Lawrence of Arabia which was his answer to nervousness. Omar Sharif ( :drool: ) tied himself onto his camel, he was so scared of falling off :lol:
Rest in peace Peter O'Toole.

Richard Harris and Oliver Reed, yes, but who's the second Richard? :think: Richard Burton?

Yes Burton is the second one Q.

I'm happy to say I got involved in a serious drinking session with one of those fine gents just over 20 years ago although I wasn't very happy about it for the following 48 hours so I can imagine what it was like when they got together :shock:

RIP them all
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
