Peter O'Toole RIP
That great Irish actor Peter O'Toole died on Saturday after a long illness, aged 81. He shot to international stardom in David Lean's classic film Lawrence of Arabia (1962) at the age of 30 (left photo). In 1968 he played King Henry II in James Goldman's movie adaptation of his play The Lion In Winter, which also starred Katharine Hepburn (right photo). These are just two examples from his long and illustrious career. CLICK for the BBC obituary.
