Peter O'Toole Trivia Questions

1. O'Toole was great as the troubled king in "Becket"; co-star Richard Burton was equally superb in the title role. Which statement about the movie's end is true?

From Quiz
Peter O'Toole Movies

Answer: The King lives, but Becket dies

It's always enjoyable to see two strong actors at the top of their game. Friendship is often tricky - especially if it's between a king and his best friend (who becomes Archbishop).

2. In which movie did O'Toole make his film debut?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole

Answer: The Savage Innocents

He appeared in the stage production of 'The Long and the Short and the Tall', but not the movie. His performance in 'The Day they Robbed the Bank of England' persuaded David Lean to offer him 'Lawrence of Arabia'.

3. O'Toole is equally well-known for his excellent performance in the title role in "Lawrence of Arabia". Who directed this sprawling epic?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole Movies

Answer: David Lean

This movie is a bit long, but still manages to hold one's interest. (T.E. Lawrence - as played by O'Toole - must have ben quite an interesting fellow.) Unlike "Becket", O'Toole doesn't share the screen here with an equal co-star; he alone dominates the movie.

4. Who said that if O'Toole had been any prettier, the movie would have had to be called 'Florence of Arabia'?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole

Answer: Noel Coward

Actually, as one reviewer pointed out, there are parts of 'Dr. Zhivago' where Julie Christie looks a tad like O'Toole in 'Lawrence'.

5. O'Toole again played a British Monarch in "The Lion in Winter". What legendary actress also starred in the movie?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole Movies

Answer: Katharine Hepburn

O'Toole and Hepburn are always commanding to watch. (Be that as it may, I'm not as impressed by this movie as many other people seem to be.)

6. Some years after 'Lawrence', O'Toole and Omar Sharif starred together in another movie, again produced by Sam Spiegel. What was it called?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole

Answer: The Night of the Generals

Both played German army officers (improbably in Sharif's case) in this disappointing 1967 adaptation of Hans Helmut Kirst's book, directed by Anatole Litvak.

7. 'Man of La Mancha' reunited O'Toole with one of his 'Lion in Winter' co-stars. Who was it?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole

Answer: John Castle

Sadly, Castle's career never lived up to the promise hinted at in his performance as the bitter, scheeming, Prince Geoffrey in 'TLIW'. His other major credits include 'Antony and Cleopatra' (1973) and the TV series 'I Claudius' and 'The Lost Empires'.

8. "Masada" was also a fact-based tale. What ancient civilization was involved in the story?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole Movies

Answer: Rome

This was another tale of religious confrontation set in ancient Rome. The movie co-starred Peter Strauss.

9. O'Toole was one of the stars of "Rosebud". The movie (which didn't do particularly well) was interesting for one unusual reason: a former New York political figure tried his hand at acting by appearing in the movie. Who was this man?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole Movies

Answer: Former Mayor of New York City

Former New York City mayor John V. Lindsay briefly tried his hand at acting after his days as mayor were completed. (He also briefly considered a run for the presidency.) Neither idea worked out.

10. O'Toole also starred in "Goodbye, Mr. Chips". Who was Chips?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole Movies

Answer: Teacher

O'Toole is one of many to portray this legendary educator.

11. In 'My Favourite Year', our boy played a drunken film-star about to make his live television debut. The movie is reportedly based on Mel Brooks' experiences with a major Hollywood star in the 1950's. Who?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole

Answer: Errol Flynn

12. O'Toole starred in the movie version of the novel, "Night of the Generals". Which statement accurately describes the movie's setting?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole Movies

Answer: World War II

Based on a novel by Hans Helmut Kirst, this movie involves a wartime murder. Several members of the German High Command are suspects.

13. O'Toole starred in "Lord Jim". Who wrote the novel on which the film was based?

From Quiz Peter O'Toole Movies

Answer: Joseph Conrad

Conrad is better known these days for "Heart of Darkness" (which transformed into "Apocalypse Now").
