Lent: Part 39

Lawrence of Arabia (1962) – There is oh so much to be said about imperialism and self-determination and Alec Guiness in rather shoddy brownface. I am not sure I’m qualified to give those subjects the intelligent, serious discussion they are due.

I will content myself instead with the observation that Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif are very pretty men, and if a cutting room floor somewhere has footage of them maybe just kissing a little, I’d like to find that room.
