Upon its release in 1962, Lawrence of Arabia swept audiences away with its dramatic portrayal of Thomas Edward Lawrence, an Englishman who rose to international attention by assisting the Arabs in their revolt against the Turks during WWI. David Lean's trademark epic filmmaking combined with Peter O'Toole's strong performance as Lawrence earned the film seven Academy Awards and established its place in cinema history as one of the grandest pictures ever made. The cinematography and scope of the storytelling means it's worth seeing on the big screen, where you can see every grain of sand that blows into O'Toole's piercing blue eyes.
