"The only exercise I take is walking behind the coffins of friends who took exercise."

Best known for playing T. E. Lawrence in David Leans Lawrence of Arabia Peter O'Toole was a sensitive and talented actor of the very old school. Nominated for eight Academy awards, the only one he won was in 2003, and that was an honorary award for his contribution to cinematic history. O'Toole he did however win a plethora of other awards through out his career. I remember him not only in Lawrence, but in  Stardust, Zulu Dawn, Man of La Mancha and The Lion in Winter.  He was a contemporary of Katherine Hepburn, and fellow irishman Richard Harris and a damn fine actor'
