RIP Peter O'Toole

You inspired the hell out of me when I was a kid, especially Murphy's War and Man from La Mancha; I wanted to blow up U boats too and be a knight tipping at windmills, amongst other things.
Whenever I felt down and out when fighting the power companies (now that is tipping at windmills) I'd play your song, gird my loins and re-enter the frey. Thank you.

And I give you this, a 10 year old singing like a devil and angel combined; much better than you as I'm sure you'll agree. But you inspired her too. I bet she's a little drama queen monster in real life, but who cares. The end bit is amazing. Enjoy!

They don't make them like that anymore... they do, actually.

RIP, Peter O'Toole, the world won't be the same without nutters like you in it, but I've got the vids; that's a kind of immortality.
Great actor, a real class act. Talking of which, loved him in Goodbye Mr Chips.

Thanks for posting the links Sajehar. I've never seen that La Mancha film, but it looks terrific. Hopefully it will show up sometime over the Christmas period. That song, The Impossible Dream, is a masterpiece and the lyrics seem very apt when thinking of the struggles that many carers go through - it could, in truth, be the theme song for this forum.
