Very accomplished man. His talents will be missed. I am a big fan of Lawrence of Arabia. I never thought he was very attractive but the opening minutes of that film prove otherwise. I also had forgotten, until I took a little trip to imdb, his role in The Ruling Class. Niche-y but classic. Rest in Peace.

One of the greats, a stellar career though sadly never won an Oscar, (aside from the 'oops we missed him out' 'honourary' one in 2003).

Still, a hell of an actor and character.

It's so difficult with such a great actor to pick a "best" performance, but I'll always remember Lawrence of Arabia, and one other of my favourites, Murphy's War (1971).

R.I.P. to a great actor.

Agree, photopilot. Had a look round for 'best scenes' and there are surprisingly-few of them on the net. Finished up finding a scene from the film 'Lawrence of Arabia' which, in my view, best illustrates O'Toole's gift for first of all acting with extreme 'intensity,' and secondly being 'different.' I honestly don't think that any other actor could have put this scene over as well, or created the 'intensity' which was always O'Toole's 'trademark'............

One of my favourite O'Toole performances was his portrayal of John Sidney Howard in the 1980's adaptation of Nevil Shute's "Pied Piper". Superb.

It is amazing he lived as long as he did given all the booze he enjoyed with Burton and other pals. Loved him in the very funny "My Favorite Year."
