    Omar Sharif, ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ and ‘Dr. Zhivago’ Star, Dies at 83

    https://www.yahoo.com/movies/omar-sh...726644857.html

    Omar Sharif, the dashing, Egyptian-born actor who was one of the biggest movie stars in the world in the 1960s, with memorable roles in Dr. Zhivago, Lawrence of Arabia and Funny Girl, has died. He was 83.

    Sharif suffered a heart attack on Friday afternoon in a hospital in Cairo, his agent said.
    He was a really good actor. RIP.

    You should see Monsieur Ibrahim. It's in French, but it shows just how much he could do if put in the right role.

    Thanks. I'll look for it. My French is serviceable.
