  1. O’Toole was surely a giant as an actor, and a breed therein! In the movie, For The greater Glory, he played a Catholic priest (Fr. Christopher), who gets murdered. He also played Pope Paul III in the TV series, The Tudors. Btw he was raised Roman Catholic, though departed the church later, but as he said never Jesus Christ, at least historically as a real person. As I remember along the way, he said he was a “retired ‘historical’ Christian”.
