I really liked him in My Favorite Year, an Errol Flynn-like character in the twilight of his career doing a live TV show. So many great scenes and lines...For me, the best line in the movie was when he went into the ladies room by mistake and was taken to task by Lil (Selma Dimaond from Night Court):Lil: "Hey! This is for ladies only!"Alan: (unzips his fly)"So is this, ma'am... But every now and then I have to run a little water through it."O'Toole was awesome...
Sad...He was one of the last greats of screen and stage. I think my favorite role of his was as Henry II , in The Lion in Winter.
"Creator" was another under appreciated movie in my opinion.Club Paradise is on the list of favorites though, along with the above mentioned "My Favorite Year"
Lawrence of Arabia... :-)
TBG--And no one could have said that line with such pinache.MW-Another enjoyable performance.3Boxes--I'm just glad someone else on the planet has seen Club Paradise. I did think I was the only one.NFO--Naturally, but I was going for the more obscure. :-)
I'm with Monkeywrangler. He was brilliant as Henry II. He also played Henry II in "Becket" a few years later, opposite Burton.
I cannot think of a bad thing he did. "Rogue male" is another favorite. A class act all the way, a very pretty man, and the kind of accent that makes a certain type of woman just take off their clothes.
BP-Agreed.Og--there is something about that accent and those blue, blue eyes.....
