Video of the Day: Roger Ebert Interviews Peter O’Toole


Irish-born stage and screen actor Peter O’Toole, who became an international star in the title role of David Lean’s Oscar-winning epic Lawrence of Arabia, died on Saturday at age 81. O’Toole achieved stardom playing T. E. Lawrence for which he received his first of eight Academy Award nominations – Becket(1964), The Lion in Winter (1968), Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1969), The Ruling Class (1972), The Stunt Man (1980), My Favourite Year (1982) and Venus (2006). He is among the greatest actors who ever lived (even if he holds the record for the most Academy Award acting nominations without a win), and so it’s no surprise that the internet has been flooded with countless articles looking back at his legendary career. In 2002, the Telluride Film Festival honoured Peter O’Toole, and as part of the event, Roger Ebert interviewed the legendary actor. recently posted a video of the interview, which I’ve embedded below. Enjoy!
