David Lean’s lush, Oscar-winning biopic stars Peter O’Toole as T.E. Lawrence, the Oxford-educated British army officer who aided the Arabs in their revolt against the Turks. Teaming up with Sherif Ali (Omar Sharif), Lawrence crosses a desert (considered uncrossable) in order to join two separate Arab tribes together as a single fighting force. Aiming to achieve Arab sovereignty, he wins a series of military victories but always keeps his eye on the larger picture, doing his best to prevent the subjection of the Arabs to British colonial rule. The film won seven Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director.

Lawrence of Arabia is a film where everything comes together and works. The magnificent photography captures the sheer physical presence of the desert and then lays superb, sweeping action on top of it, complemented perfectly by Maurice Jarre's music. Alec Guinness, Omar Sharif and Anthony Quinn act magnificently and look as though they belong in the desert and the arid cities but Peter O'Toole bestrides the film and gives the performance of his career. His tormented Lawrence brings a depth of character and richness rarely seen in epics. Three hours long and never a flagging moment, Lawrence is a genuine contender for the top ten films of all time.
