Omar Sharif dead

Omar Sharif was a larger-than-life presence in my life when I was a teen. I had seen him ride into the desert in Lawrence of Arabia. Needless to say, I was floored and became a fan of Davin Lean too. Sharif was handsome and had a commanding presence on screen. He acted in a few Egyptian movies before Lean cast him in Lawrence. But his best performance was in Dr Shivago. It was a movie in which his competition was Julie Christie and the snow.

Omar died today. He was 83.
