They were hard-drinking, hell-raising, generally gorgeous and very talented. Peter O'Toole. Richard Burton. Richard Harris. Michael Caine. Sean Connery.

I really like the "Ignore" function, POM. Don't you?

@Eva,
I know exactly what you mean. The ignore function can make a thread so pleasant!

The first Shakespearean play I ever saw was the film of Richard Burton's Hamlet. I remember being impressed. I want to see it again.

I also remember how impressed I was with Peter O'Toole in Lawrence of Arabia.

A friend, who is now dead, used to watch The Lion in Winter three or four times a year. He would call me afterwards and say, "Peter O'Toole is Henry!"

@plainoldme,
Alan Bates, Tom Courtney, Albert Finney, Robert Shaw....John Guilgud, Paul Scofield

I saw Burton's Hamlet when he did it on Broadway. I also was lucky enough to see all of the above named actors on the stage.

Have you ever seen the movie "Becket" with O'Toole and Burton? What a combo.Smile

@ossobuco,
Another favorite of mine is "A Man for All Seasons" with Scofield (and Shaw). I think that is just a perfect film--superb acting, visually beautiful, intelligent, literate screenplay.

@ossobuco,
Did any of you ever see the totally syrup-y movie, Song without End? Dirk Bogarde and Capucine, story of Franz Lizst? I saw it four or five times. I, of course, needed to get a life.

@ossobuco,
I loved Dirk Bogarde, and he was adorable in those "Doctor" comedies.

He was in so many good movies. One that has really haunted me was King and Country (with Tom Courtney). What a disturbing and powerful anti-war movie. I haven't seen that one in a long time and I'd like to re-watch it.

I may wind up joining Netflix.

@firefly,
i saw the movie but so long ago that I remember very little of it. I've been rewatching old favs and I think I will put that on my list. The only problem with watching movies these days is that I sleep more than I used to. Embarrassed
