Peter O’Toole

Posted by purplemary54 on December 15, 2013

I probably like Peter O’Toole as much as I do because of my father.  Although the movie Creator also probably had a lot to do with it.  It’s one of his less-celebrated movies, but I think it’s one of his most endearing performances.  There’s also the uninhibited silliness of My Favorite Year.  And, of course, there was his work as Don Quixote in Man of La Mancha (and his singing was not half bad).  His dramatic work will always be rightfully acknowledged as his finest, but I like the smaller movies best.  He was such a charming and disarming man, and it was always such a joy to watch him act.

Peter O’Toole has died at 81.
