One Film with the King

Friend and director, Michael O. Sajbel, has written a lovely personal remembrance of working with the recently departed Peter O’Toole. It’s so nice whener we find someone in this crazy business, who has every right to be full of themselves, but isn’t. I loved this part:

The day finally arrived when he was driven to our film set, a huge battlefield scene staged in a giant quarry in Rajasthan. He was slender and tall and elegant. It was I who was standing before greatness as I shook his hand and welcomed him to my film. And he said something that immediately put me at ease, something many an old pro has said to me before. He looked at me directly with those most beautiful piercing eyes that had graced the screen so many times in the past, still with vitality, and said, “Just tell me what you want.”
