  3. Yesterday I watched too many YouTube interviews in which he seemed to be effortlessly charming, effortlessly articulate, always in-the-moment, nothing canned or premeditated. Very impressive.

    (Or was he acting?)

  4. U are the first to post this bit of news... What a talent he was... Guess he will be joining Joan Fontaine and Ton Laughlin...

  5. Spezzatura. Yeah, I kind of went on a Peter O'Toole clip marathon yesterday. How can someone be both larger than life yet so natural at the same time?

  6. My daughter phoned me with the news, mock-threatening suicide, all due to her love of a film made 30 years before she was born. What a beautiful boy.

  7. What a gorgeous photo. Sad day. I've always had a soft spot for blond men.

  8. I don't think he really needed us, he just needed to live life on his own terms and made no apologies for it. I would have loved him even if he hadn't been half as good looking, he was just that delicious.

  9. So sad...
    I love that man because he was one of a kind. If we could ask him about his own death, I'm sure he wouldn't be sad about it at all.

    He has said a million classic things, but one of my favorites is... "The common denominator of all my friends is that they're dead."

  17. My husband commented last night about my love of movies, due in part to icons like O'Toole and the movies I grew up watching Saturday afternoons on Channel 5 on a black and white TV. Time for a trip down memory lane so I best get in line at Netflix....
