Sex & Nudity
- One man rips off another's clothes (the character is only shown shirtless/from the chest up), then comments on how "very fair" his skin is while touching his chest. The scene is suggestive, but menacing rather than erotic. However, it is strongly implied, without anything actually being shown, that the character whose shirt is ripped off is raped.
Violence & Gore
- A man on a horse shoots another man and dies (non-graphic)
- A father gives his child a gun to point at Lawrence and the Arab people.
- A young character drowns in quicksand.
- The Arabs raid a Turkish village.
- Two scenes of the Arabs blowing up Turkish trains killing a lot of people (some blood is shown on corpses.)
- A young character is injured, to avoid being tortured Lawrence shoots him in the head and dies (off-screen)
- A man on a horse charges at the Turks. He and the horse are shot and killed and we briefly see the corpses of both covered in blood.
- A battle sequence involving many shootings and stabbings, blood is shown on dead bodies and weapons, Lawrence is covered in blood.
- Mild Language such as damn, hell, oh my god, and bloody. A couple of blasphemous utterances of the name of Christ, and a couple of utterances of the racist term 'wog'.
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking
- There is drinking and smoking, but no drugs.
Frightening & Intense Scenes
- The deaths of young characters may be distressing, as well as the scene of implied torture/assault and its aftermath, but by modern standards the film is comparatively subdued.
Violence & Gore
- There is a shot of Lawrence and the knife he is holding covered in blood. The expression on Lawrence's face could make this possibly disturbing for some viewers.
- A man almost dies from dehydration in a desert. (he is saved by Lawrence)
- Lawrence willingly shoots a traitor but Lawrence becomes scared because he enjoyed it.
- Lawrence is implied to been beaten and possibly raped by Turkish soldiers.
