Peter O'Toole Claimed to be born in Ireland ... but his family had moved to Leeds 2 years prior to his birth .. and Records show his birth there in London.

Many films he made and starred with so many.

Very good actor. He was more of a character actor with those expressive eyes. Can't compare him to another.
