Peter O'Toole RIP

Died today, age 81 but looked 101.

Growing up Lawrence of Arabia was kind of a big deal whenever it was on telly and I always watch it when it's on now, just a beautiful film.

Ah that's very sad news

Kin' ell Fozdyke. Kick a man when he's down/dead why don't ya. "Yeah, rest in peace n' that but you looked dead old for your age".

One of the last greats.*

*O'Toole not Fozdyke. Cos' He's just a dead man kicker.

He must have had good time while he was young to look that old.

He was a legend as an actor and much more importantly he was an ex-St. Charles lad like myself.

You should seek out the film 'Dean Spanley', possibly his last film and one of the best British films made in the last five years, about a father/son reconciliation and living a previous life as a dog.

I liked him. RIP Pete.

Turned down a Knighthood, as I will one day. Didn't know if he was born in Leeds or Connemara, had two birth certificates, lived a great life and really could act. I wouldn't mind 81 years of what he had. A life worth celebrating not commiserating over, surely?

Grew up in Leeds, I used to work with an old lad who went to school with him at St Charles(briefly) and then St. Micks.

For some reason virtually all the press have described him as Irish. I have put the Guardian right anyway.

As Yorkshire as Tetley's tea.
Sir Bulldog Craggwood

definitely seen him talk of been born and brought up in Hunsbeck as he called it

Immortalised for all time in Laurence - a very entertaining character who was quite the ham but managed to get away with it

one of those characters as interesting off screen as just about any role he ever played
Frazier Cranium

I didnt know he called it Hunsbeck, that's good is that.  My girlfriend's mum went to school with O'Toole - Bewerley school which I always thought was in Beeston anyway.  Keith Waterhouse wrote a bit about him and their chikdhood days too, in Hunslet.  And as Heyho said yesterday, apparently the dad of a mutual mate of ours, we shall call him Breezewarmer Senior here, went to school with Peter O'Toole too.  

He's bloody amazing as Lawrence Of Arabia, I don't think he could have bettered it.

Step-Dad Docks Auntie Ada used to do Christmas seasonal work at the old sorting office on Wellington Street and said she worked with him a few times when he was a student. Not saying that its fact but its what I heard. S'all I'm saying. But no smoke without fire.*

As for Lawrence of Arabia, they just don't make em' that good anymore do they. Films used to have real 'stars' in them. Iconic is the word. It really is.

*It could also be complete bollocks because although Ada was a very dear and very old lady when I knew her she wasn't too sharp memory-wise and, in the final analysis, was never sure if it was Wednesday or Wembley.

Looks like he went to most schools in South Leeds, I grew up thinking he went to St Joes.

I used to stand with him in the scratching shed. Defo.

* His name was Peter. Definitely a tool. *

Prolly. It was totes mental in there. And, errr, that.

I don't know about Lawrence of Arabia, but, to quote Larry of Alwoodley on Leeds playing in the Championship:

"The trick, Dock, is not minding that it hurts."

Hunsbeck. So he put the first part of Hunslet on to the last part of Holbeck. Yep Codge, dead clever that…………..Fuck me the winter nights must just whizz by in Beeston at such word japery.

Technically if he lived near South Leeds Sports centre he could have lived in Hunsbeckbeest.

I can recommend a book called 'Hellraisers' which describes the lives, loves and alcohol consumption of Burton, Harris, Reid and O'Toole, and how their careers (and social lives) intertwined.

He was in a brilliant but little shown film called 'The Ruling Class' btw.

I'm a little disappointed with Dock OC. Thought he might have camped out on Sunday evening near the old Pig n Whistle in the Merrion Centre trying to clean up with 'spot the celebrity' seeing as Sports Personality was on a few yards away.

BBC beams three solid hours of top notch TV to our homes and Dock would not have even produced a stick drawing.
