Peter Seamus Lorcan O’Toole
02 Aug 1932 ~ 14 Dec 2013
One of my favorite actors died yesterday, Peter O’Toole.
A very long time ago, I saw him in The Lion in Winter.
Of course, he was superb. I ran out and bought the album of the soundtrack and played that thing over and over.
Click to hear the songs from this film!
He was nominated eight times for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role including for Lawrence of Arabia, Becket, The Lion in Winter, Goodbye, Mr. Chips, The Ruling Class, The Stunt Man, My Favorite Year, and Venus, making him the most-nominated actor never to win the award, but what a shame. He was tops in my book and always will be. The world will be a poorer place without him in it.
Goodbye, Mr. Chips – Goodbye Peter.
In loving memory,
Bex & Co.
It’s in every one of us to be wise;
Find your heart, open up both your eyes.
We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.
It’s in every one of us, by and bye.
