my heart is breaking, but look how many references they fit into the sub-title
I am very sorry to see this man go. The sub-title nailed it: while the ‘best’ Sherlock Holmes is a matter of debate to this very day, there really is no other Hercule Poirot. An admirable accomplishment, Mr. Suchet. Mystery fans everywhere applaud you.
“I had first seen Peter O’Toole some years ago playing Edmund in Lear at the Bristol Old Vic. I had not heard of him before — I went to Bristol to see another actor — and found myself intrigued with O’Toole. He looked like a beautiful, emaciated secretary bird. He was extremely young and his acting was unformed and half-derivative, but his voice had a crack like a whip. And most important of all, you couldn’t take your eyes off him. Here was that rare thing — the mystery of personality in the actor. It was nothing to do with O’Toole’s good looks, his blond hair or his commanding height — the same compelling quality was to be found in the late John Garfield who was small and dark. Acting is universally regarded as a craft, and I claim it to be nothing more except in the hands of the odd few men and women who, once or twice in a lifetime, elevate it into something odd and mystical and deeply disturbing. I believe Peter O’Toole to have this strange quality. It will be fascinating to watch him in the years to come because, successful as he is, he hasn’t really begun yet.” — Richard Burton, 1964
