David Lean's Academy Award-winning account of the legendary T.E. Lawrence's efforts to unify the nomadic desert tribes against the Ottoman Turks during World War I is equal parts war film and existential romance, as the arid expanses of the desert draw the British scholar and adventurer into its beckoning, soul-stirring emptiness. Overlaid with Maurice Jarre's unforgettable score, a magnificent cast — including Alec Guinness, Omar Sharif, Anthony Quinn, Claude Rains, and of course Peter O'Toole, who became an instant star as the eccentric and inscrutable Lawrence — and exquisite renderings of the vast, shimmering sands in Freddie Young's magnificent cinematography, Lawrence of Arabia is the greatest of all great, sprawling epics.
