Peter O'Toole 1932-2013

I just now heard that Peter O'Toole, the star of the film I consider the greatest ever made, passed away today. I'm sorry to hear it--and yeah, it makes me think about my grandparents who are pretty much the same age--but I understand he'd been sick. Thanks for the amazing body of work left behind; Peter O'Toole didn't always make great films, but he gave me some of the greatest performances I've ever seen. His Henry II in The Lion in Winter is some of the most exciting, alive, vital acting I've ever seen. Thanks for giving us so much.
