When I read the books on the life of Feynman, he became my physics' hero. It might be because there just aren't enough books about the lives of many other physicists (Einstein being the exception of course), but I think it goes even beyond that. His approach to physics and his ability to form mental images that were 1) complete and 2) simple enough to work with is what does it for me.
I found these lectures by Feynman in New Zealand and I've never seen anyone explain physics like him. Also, it seems Microsoft made some Feynman lectures available online.
I hope you all enjoy them!
