Chris James Posted December 15, 2013 Report Share Posted December 15, 2013 It had to be the eyes, you could drown in those pools of blue. Lawrence of Arabia is probably the most stunning film I've ever seen, and now that O'Toole is gone I will have to sit down and watch it once again. The articles in the news remember him well as a notorious drinker and prankster. He gave up the former but never the latter. They quote Noel Coward as saying that O'Toole had such beauty that they should have called his most famous film "Florence of Arabia." He was a formidable presence on the stage and perhaps one of England's greatest actors, but they seem to have a handful of those. He will be missed but what a legacy he has left us. Time to slap the first disk in the player and prepare myself to be stunned once again. Quote Link to comment
