We wanted to pay our respects to Peter O’Toole who passed away today. He was a movie star in the movie star era. Looking at the array of photos in stories about him, he never stopped looking like a movie star.

O’Toole, of course, worked with Woody Allen on What’s New, Pussycat? in 1965. It was Allen’s first film credit, as a screenwriter and actor. O’Toole also appeared in Casino Royale.

We did a bit of a search, and we couldn’t find any quotes of either actor talking about each other.

There’s plenty of tributes to O’Toole around the web. We loved him in ‘Goodbye, Mr Chips’. Variety has a good write up.

Here’s a cool cut up of O’Toole in action in ‘What’s New Pussycat?

  1. And Peter was also in another film with Woody alumna Barbara Hershey called The Stunt Man. The movie is “watchable”, but if you can watch it on DVD or bluray, it has, in my opinion at least, one of the best “making of” documentaries ever done. With endearing cheesy charm, clever cinematography, and righteous wit Richard Rush takes you through the entire story of the making the movie from inception to how he got it into the theaters. Heck, he even takes you on a flight in his plane, a tour of his house, and a tour of LA. Its actually better than the movie. I highly recommend it.
