Lawrence Of Ara­bia

Seven, 12.30pm, PG ( 1962)

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

A win­ner of six Os­cars, David Lean’s epic 1962 biopic con­cerns a de­ter­mined young Bri­tish lieu­tenant ( played with gusto by Peter O’Toole), who is ap­pointed as an ob­server with the leader of an Arab tribal army dur­ing WWI, and goes on to in­spire the Arab tribes to take up arms against the Turks. De­spite its lengthy run­ning time, the pac­ing is tight and there are ex­cel­lent per­for­mances from Alec Guin­ness, Omar Sharif and An­thony Quinn as Arab tribal leaders.
