“Greatest biopic ever”…”Genius in 70mm”…”A Miracle of a Movie”…
All these statements were said somewhere about director David Lean’s Lawrence Of Arabia and it’s understandable. It was some kind of madness to make a movie like this in 1962. Working in the middle of desert for such a long time, those extraordinary ways of cinematographer Freddie Young, and working with that huge number of actors (and camels).
But it all worked. Lawrence Of Arabia is more than a glorious, expensive, old biopic movie.
