"Farewell Omar Sharif (1932 - 2015)"

July 10, 2015


As legend would have it, when Peter O'Toole met his costar Omar Sharif on the set of their movie "Lawrence of Arabia" and  refused to believe that Omar was the Egyptian’s real name. “Omar Sharif! Nobody in the world is called Omar Sharif! Your name must be Fred.” And from that moment a great friendship was born, and Omar became known as "Cairo Fred" to O'Toole.


From one Fred to another; Farewell Sir and may your talents shine in the next world.
