Lawrence of Arabia 1962
A mighty spectacle of action and adventure! (Australia)
Plot: Epic rumination on a flamboyant and controversial British military figure and his conflicted loyalties during wartime service.
Story: An inordinately complex man who has been labeled everything from hero, to charlatan, to sadist, Thomas Edward Lawrence blazed his way to glory in the Arabian desert, then sought anonymity as a common soldier under an assumed name. The story opens with the death of Lawrence in a motorcycle accident in Dorset at the age of 46, then flashbacks to recount his adventures: as a young intelligence officer in Cairo in 1916, he is given leave to investigate the progress of the Arab revolt against the Turks in World War I. In the desert, he organizes a guerrilla army and--for two years--leads the Arabs in harassing the Turks with desert raids, train-wrecking and camel attacks. Eventually, he leads his army northward and helps a British General destroy the power of the Ottoman Empire.
Did you know: Arthur Kennedy was cast as Edmond O'Brien's replacement largely at the suggestion of Anthony Quinn.
