PHANTOMS

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 of "Pygmalion."
