RIP Peter O’Toole

Actor Peter O'Toole as Lawrence of Arabia-1138942

 

Sad to hear about the passing of a legend yesterday. I’ll always remember my first impression of Peter O’Toole as an actor — I was lucky to catch a 70mm projection of Lawrence of Arabia a few years back in a cinema near Santa Monica. With intermission the runtime was well over 4 hours but it could have gone on forever and I’d’ve loved every minute of it. O’Toole’s performance was of course masterful, and seeing the film in that format was jaw-droppingly gorgeous, one of those once in a lifetime events that cinemaphiles cherish forever. In honor of his passing, we have a copy of the Lawrence Of Arabia script for anyone interested in taking a look at how it all came together.
