  • TV Viewer

    Just showing all 8 of Peter O’Toole’s films in which he was nominated for Best Actor could take most of a entire day.

    I hope Mr. O’Toole and Ms. Joan Fontaine will make it into TCM annual short movie featuring a tribute to those people associated with the cinema who died during the calendar year. It is shown on TCM between Christmas and New Year’s Day, (and I am sure it can be found on the internet). TCM’s tribute film is better than the one made by the Academy Awards. TCM should make the tribute film shown at the Academy Awards, since they do a great job year after year, and after all the complaints the Academy Awards gets for leaving people out. There is not enough time to mention everyone associated with the movies who died during the year, however, TCM usually gets praises for their tribute film, while the Academy Awards usually gets complaints for their tribute movie.

    Don’t forget Tom Laughlin, (who starred in 1971’s Billy Jack), who also passed away recently.
