LAWRENCE OF ARABIA - Oscar Classics

226 min | PG
This sweeping historical epic covers the Allies’ mideastern campaign during World War I as seen through the eyes of the enigmatic T. E. Lawrence (Peter O’Toole, in the role that made him a star). A bored general staffer in 1917 Cairo, Lawrence talks his way into a transfer to Arabia. Once in the desert, he befriends Sherif Ali Ben El Kharish (Omar Sharif) and draws up plans to aid the Arabs in their rebellion against the Turks. No one is ever able to discern Lawrence’s motives in this matter: Prince Feisal (Alec Guinness) dismisses him as yet another “desert–loving Englishman,” and his British superiors assume that he’s either arrogant or mad. The movie, lensed in Spain and Jordan, ended up costing a then–staggering $13 million and won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director.
