This was the first time I had seen Lawrence of Arabia since its original showing in 1962.
fifty years ago! The terms "epic:" and "sweeping" could not be more appropriate when applied to this film. Yes, were it made today, it would probably be riddled with hi-tech
effects, a more contemporary sound track. etc. Also, the infamous scene - way back then -
of Jose Ferrar's ripping off Peter O'Toole's shirt, followed up by lusty leers would have
been more vividly acted out. It didn't need more "realism:" We all got it back then and still do.
Although slightly technically dated, this is film making of the highest order. Anyone who truly loves movies will truly love this remarkable film.
