'Tis a sad thread, at first read of a new post. Then memories of all the wonder, enjoyment and accomplishments the person provided flow through and one can naught but smile.

This thread is getting to be too much. Can it be moved down the forum? It really shouldn't be in the "NEWS" forum at the top of Reader Rant.

I don't like being affronted with death every time I come to Reader Rant - especially since nearly seventy percent of these people I have never heard of...

Plus the NEWS forum gets hardly ever used any more because of the need to broadcast some B-talent's death.

Peter O'Toole made many classic movies in his short life. His Henry II opposite Hepburn's Eleanor of Aquitaine was his best at that time. My favorite was "The Stunt Man." The camera work and musical score were superb! I worked with many of the actors on the stage all over Hollywood and the entire cast adored their teetering and slightly unsober leading man who kept the entire cast and crew in stitches. The camera work on the exterior shots made in the Coronado Hotel were stunning.

Don’t fret rick. What one can glean from all of the recent obits is that being an actor/tress is terminal.

Enter the profession at your own risk.
