RIP my vision of Camber (Peter O'Toole)
« on: December 15, 2013, 02:27:29 pm »
I read today that Peter O'Toole (who is probably most famous for playing Lawrence of Arabia) passed away.  He was always my vision of Camber until he got to be too old to pull it off.  When he played the Pope in "The Tudors," he looked frail.  The article I read said he died after a long illness, so I wonder if he was ill even then.

Anyway, I guess I'll have to dreamcast him from the beyond now.  I was dreamcasting him-fifteen-years-ago anyway.  :)

May his family, friends, and loved ones find peace in this difficult time.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

He does have a connection here since Beckett was a movie cited by KK as one of her inspirations, altho I saw him more as Cinhil. 

I've read that he was criticized for his acting in Lawrence but Ive watched that movie several times and think he was perfect - Ive read Lawrence' autobiography too, and recommend it, especially since it provides a lot of insight into how the middleast was affected (negatively) up by British/french politics.
