We kind of talk about Peter O’Toole This Week

Sometimes a person knocks it out of the park their first time at the plate. Hell, some people do it on their first swing.

In 1962 a film was released that redefined EPIC. Almost more impressive than the size and scope of this film was the performance of its lead. Why was this so impressive? Because it was not only a character that appeared in almost every frame of the four hour behemoth, but it was also this actors FIRST FILM ROLE.

The film was Lawrence of Arabia, and the star was Peter O'Toole.

Since then, O'Toole has racked up one of the most impressive resumes of any actor in the history of film. He has been a ubiquitous part of the cinematic landscape for over 50 years, and this past week he slipped free this mortal coil, and the world is a less cool place because of it.

This week we discuss the life and films of Peter as well as a bunch of other stuff.

Actually... if we are being honest, we talked about a bunch of random stuff and then a little bit about O'Toole. I think he would have liked it.
