New Digital Restoration: Lawrence of Arabia; dir. David Lean (1963);Boscos after

Noon showtime. Co-meetup with Strictly Belcourt group.

"An epic achievement in film-making"--Boston Globe

"An astonishing, unrepeatable epic"--Chicago Tribune

Widely considered to be one of the greatest films of all time, David Lean's epic is masterful (though controversies concerning the film are intriguing) and introduced Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif to international audiences.

CAST: Peter O'Toole; Omar Sharif; Alec Guinness; Anthony Quinn; Claude Rains; Arthur Kennedy; Jose Ferrer.

7 Oscars: Best Picture, Director, Music (Maurice Jarre), Art Direction, Cinematography, Sound, Editing. Nominations for Best Actor (Peter O'Toole) and Supporting Actor (Omar Sharif).

From the Belcourt Site:

"With cutting-edge technology and expertise from Sony Colorworks, Prasad Film and Chase Audio, Sony’s restoration team has recently completed a three-year effort to fully restore LAWRENCE OF ARABIA in time for its 50th anniversary...."

"The result is a stunning 4K restoration of this sweeping historical epic, one of the most beautiful films of all time."

“No studio today would make a film like LAWRENCE OF ARABIA— 227 minutes long, featuring a cast of hundreds riding camels through the desert, shot on location (there were no computer graphics in 1962). Yet Sony Pictures’ new 50th anniversary restoration … seems fresh and modern, in its political themes and its stunning visual clarity.” – New York Times

Partial Synopsis:

"An inordinately complex man who has been labeled everything from hero to charlatan, Thomas Edward Lawrence blazed his way to glory in the Arabian desert, then sought anonymity as a common soldier under an assumed name."

"The story opens with the death of Lawrence in a motorcycle accident in Dorset at the age of 46, then flashbacks to recount his adventures: as a young intelligence officer in Cairo in 1916, he is given leave to investigate the progress of the Arab revolt against the Turks in World War I." MANY events follow...(Imdb)

    Stupendous restoration, looks amazing. Phenomenal direction by David Lean--what a huge project. "Premiere" ranked Peter O'Toole's performance as the greatest in film history. And OMG, charismatic Omar Sharif with the greatest entrance (pure genius by Lean) in movie history. Only major miscue: Alec Guinness--yikes. But an amazingly intricate and huge scope encompassed.
