Remembering Peter O'Toole 1932 - 2013



Actor Peter O'Toole, who died Saturday at age 81, received eight Academy Award nominations during his long career - and he holds the record for the most acting nominations without a win. In addition to his many film and television roles, he also appeared in numerous stage productions, including a 1987 Broadway revival of Pygmalion as Professor Henry Higgins (he also played Higgins in a 1983 Showtime film opposite Margot Kidder).

Below are some videos I've selected to celebrate Mr. O'Toole's life and career.

Lawrence of Arabia (1962) for which he was nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe.



Becket (1964) for which he won a Golden Globe and received an Academy Award nomination.



How to Steal a Million (1966)



The Lion in Winter (1968) for which he won a Golden Globe and received an Academy Award nomination.



Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1969) for which he won a Golden Globe and received an Academy Award nomination.



The Ruling Class (1972) for which he received an Academy Award nomination.



Man of La Mancha (1972) for which he received a Golden Globe nomination.



The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson on January 13, 1978.



The Stunt Man (1980) for which he was nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe.

Loved Peter O'Toole, especially in the Ruling Class, an often unnoticed cult classic. RIP

An amazing actor, my favorites of his are My Favorite Year, The Lion in Winter and Creator.

That Letterman appearance is sheer brilliance from his entrance all the way through, what a charming and game man.

Hate to see him leave us, but it's been such a rough week with the passing of Eleanor Parker, Audrey Totter, Billy Jack himself-Tom Laughlin and now in one day both Peter and Joan Fontaine!
