Snow falls on the pyramids and Lawrence of Arabia dies. Coincidence?

I actually had a friend text me saying that he heard somebody from Tool died but couldn't find anything online. :face:

Becket was always my favorite O' Toole movie, if you want to see acting in it's finest, put on that movie.

There are many drinking anecdotes about Peter O'Toole. My favorite is that he and a friend were drinking extensively in a pub and then decided to take in a show at the theater across the street. As they're sitting there, O'Toole nudges his friend and says, "You'll love this bit, this is where I come in ... BLOODY HELL!"

More famous is that he and Richard Harris were drinking during an intermission. They rushed back to the stage. Harris slipped, fell, and slid to the edge of the stage. A lady in the front row said, "SIR! You're drunk!" Harris said, "Madam, if you think I'm pissed, wait 'til you see O'Toole."

Maybe both apocryphal, but funny.

She was in several movies that, imo, are just terrific.

Suspicion is one of my favorite movies ever (I'm a huge Hitchcock fan). Rebecca, adapted from a book I love, was one of the few movies that lived up to the book, imo, even with some deviations Hitchcock implemented. The Constant Nymph is on my list of movies I want to see.

Her older sister, Olivia de Havilland, is stlll alive, and until yesterday, they went almost their entire lives hating each other. What a waste. Only siblings to have each won Oscars.

Suspicion is a fabulous movie, and she was wonderful in it, and how the hell did Cary Grant never win an Oscar, overlooked because he "played Cary Grant"? Joan Fontaine/Eleanor Parker/Peter O'Toole, looks like I have to refresh my memory with some bodies of work this weekend

Harold Camping who predicted the end of the world has died.

It's a little drizzly out, but I'd hardly call it the end of the world.

Crazy to think he survived that long, living in Siberia in the 1920s. Also never knew his company has produced only about 10% of AKs in existence. Never patented the design until 1997

I've always liked this picture. It's Kalashnikov with Eugene Stoner (the inventor of the AR-15/M-16), and each one is holding an example of the other's rifle:

I can understand how one could be ambivalent toward Kalashnikov and his products, but the man was a engineering genius. I didn't realize that he also designed more than a hundred other firearms in addition to the AK. Kalashnikov probably sits only behind John Moses Browning as the most prolific and successful firearms designer in history.

I'm surprised it took this long to write one of these articles.

RIP Andy Granatelli, the former CEO of STP Oil Treatment and legendary Indy-racing team owner and sponsor. Granatelli entered some of the most innovative and radical cars in the history of the Indianapolis 500, including the 1967 and 1968 turbine-powered cars. His blue-and red STP sponsorship of Richard Petty in NASCAR also produced one of the most iconic racing liveries of all time.
