This monumental epic – resonating with the score of Maurice Jarre – recounts the true life of T.E. Lawrence, better known to the world as Lawrence of Arabia. During WWI, a young, idealistic British officer, Lawrence (Peter O’Toole) is assigned to the camp of Prince Feisal (Alec Guinness), an Arab tribal chieftain and leader in a revolt against the Turks. In a series of brilliant tactical maneuvers, Lawrence leads fifty of Feisal’s men in a tortured three week crossing of the Nefud Desert to attack the strategic Turkish held port of Aqaba.
