David Lean United Kingdom, 1962

Wee Hunk's rating of the film Lawrence of Arabia

This was a career maker for Peter O'Toole. Of course this was back in the day when men were men, and women got no speaking parts. Alec Guinness shows up in brownface. Not that Hollywood has learned its lesson about casting white people as foreigners. My biggest problem with the film has to do with the use of the day for night filter. It just looks wrong.
