It's a very sad day in the film world after news broke today about the passing of legendary actor Peter O'Toole. According to his agent, O'Toole died after a bout with a "long illness" at the age of 81. O'Toole died in London on Saturday. The actor was most famous for starring in Lawrence of Arabia, the 1963 classic by director David Lean. O'Toole's performance in that film is utterly fantastic.
To this day, Lawrence of Arabia is still one of the cinema's most epic films. It's truly amazing to watch, and O'Toole's performance certainly contributes to that. O'Toole was also the star of many theatrical productions, along with other films. O'Toole starred in films such as The Last Emperor, The Lion in Winter, Goodbye Mr. Chips, and Ratatouille. O'Toole will surely be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the O'Toole family at this time.
