''Lawrence of Arabia'' is a [[EpicMovie historical epic film]] directed by DavidLean about British officer T.E. Lawrence's activities leading the Arab revolt against the Turks during WorldWarOne.

Producer Sam Spiegel bought the rights to Lawrence's own account of his experiences in the Middle East, ''The Seven Pillars of Wisdom'' for Lean (who had previously helmed the Spiegel-produced ''Film/TheBridgeOnTheRiverKwai'' to great success) to direct. ''Lawrence'' took two years to make, in locations like Jordan, Morocco and Spain. When finally released in 1962, it won a ton of awards including the AcademyAward for Best Picture, and remains highly-regarded by most critics decades later. The movie is intelligently written and well-acted, although some critics have issues with the historical accuracy. On a visual note, it contains some absolutely beautiful desert scenery, and Creator/PeterOToole is terribly pretty in the title role.

Famously one of the all-time favorite films of StevenSpielberg--he counts the legendary MatchCut as being one of the seminal inspirations for him taking up filmmaking as a career. He eagerly spearheaded a restoration of the film for DVD, with the assistance of MartinScorsese.

* DatedHistory: Besides the HollywoodHistory below, the depiction of Lawrence as a sadist who enjoys killing can be traced to several critical Lawrence biographies (by Richard Aldington and Anthony Nutting) written shortly before the movie's release, a depiction which most modern historians discount. On the other hand, showing him as a masochist who liked ''receiving'' pain has become widely accepted.
