R.I.P. Peter O’Toole. Amongst all the retrospectives, let me suggest The Stunt Man as his most underrated role. I saw him on some morning show when Lawrence of Arabia was rereleased, and the Katie Couric-type interviewing him asked what his best picture was, obviously expecting him to say Lawrence of Arabia. The befuddlement when he said The Stunt Man instead was beautiful to behold. Also, Barbara Hershey is delicious.
