NewportBarGuy: Who the hell is Peter O'Toole? Sounds like a poofter.
MorrisBird: [Alan Swann (O'Toole) has blundered into the wrong restroom]Lil: This is for ladies only!Alan Swann: [unzipping fly] So is *this*, ma'am, but every now and then I have to run a little water through it.
Bathia_Mapes: Love, love, love this movie.Lawrence of Arabia was okay, but I never got the appeal.

LoA pussyfoots around his psychology and probably has to because of when was made. Also, the British/American world view of the war and Empire is kind of tacitly assumed so the 'squabbling arabs' the film depicts seems sort of motiveless. There's no way this would get depicted this way today. Patton seemed to me too worshipful and about the Greatest Generation telling themselves how Great they were. Both films are nicely made, however.Plus the soundtrack by Dominic Frontiere makes it even more appealing.This LP traded for outrageous prices for years on E-Bay. I remember when much of the score appeared on Rush's web site embedded in a Flash video how people were passing instructions on how to pull the audio. You've not lived until you've heard the caravan march on a decent system.Steven Railsback is a seriously underrated actor who is well-suited for his role in The Stunt Man and Peter O'Toole is deliciously evil.I wonder why Railsback's career never took off? Apparently he was very good in an X-Files episode.
Bathia_Mapes: He first caught my attention when he portrayed Charlie Manson in the made-for-TV version of Helter Skelter. Didn't see him in much of anything after that until The Stunt Man was released. I've always wondered if he got typecast after playing Manson.
