PETER O'TOOLE portrays Timothy Flyte, a former Oxford scholarturned
tabloid journalist in Dimension Films' terrifying new suspensehorror
picture PHANTOMS. A fussy, slightly rumpled Englishman, Flyte's
expert knowledge concerning a prehistoric creature makes him invaluable
in the government's all out war against the demon's attacks in
a small, mountain resort community.
This year marks the beginning of O'Toole's fifth decade as an
actor in a career that has included seven Academy
Award nominations since his stunning portrayal of T.E. Lawrence
in David Lean's epic masterpiece "Lawrence of Arabia."
It was in 1956 two years after graduating from the
Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts that the actor made his stage
debut in the Bristol Old Vic company's production of "Major
Barbara." Three years later, he triumphed again in the West
End production "The Long and The Short and The Tall,"
a performance which brought him major studio film offers in both
England and America. He made his motion picture debut in Walt
Disney's production of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic "Kidnapped."
At 27, O'Toole joined the Shakespeare Memorial Theater at Stratfordon
Avon where, with key roles in "The Merchant of Venice,"
"The Taming of the Shrew" and "Troilus and Cressida,"
he became the youngest leading man in the company's 100 year history.
Since receiving his first Oscar nomination for "Lawrence
of Arabia" in 1962, O'Toole has provided worldwide screen
audiences with stunning performances in such films as "Becket,"
"Lord Jim," "The Lion in Winter" and "The
Ruling Class," as well as "What's New Pussycat?"
"The Night of the Generals," "Murphy's War,"
"Under Milkwood," "The Stunt Man," "The
Bible," and "How To Steal A Million," plus numerous
others. His television credits include the eight hour miniseries
"Masada," as well as "Svengali," "Pygmalion"
and "Kim" for both cable and network television.
O'Toole's success in films has failed to diminish his respect
and enthusiasm for the theater. Throughout his career, he has
consistently alternated between films and the stage, he most recent
example of which is his starring role in the Broadway revival
