R.I.P. Peter O'Toole

Peter O'Toole by Sophie Cossette

Peter O'Toole had been the last man standing among the renowned hard-drinking hellraising actors of his generation such as Oliver Reed and Richard Harris. But now he's also gone off to that big bar in the sky. O'Toole was memorable in all his performances and his witty and charismatic persona was one of a kind. His striking blue eyes, singular good looks, debonair upper class Brit attitude, and mesmerizing acting talent gave him his ticket to stardom and also made you forget that he was a bad drunk in real life. But, hey, that's what made him the one and only Peter O'Toole! He'll be missed and I raise my glass to him.
