Lawrence Of Arabia Film Stills

Reception [adjust] Lawrence of Arabia was a major critical and commercial success upon its premiere, and it continues to be beloved with audiences and reviewers alike. The film's images, soundtrack, storyline, and performance by Peter O'Toole have all received widespread praise; the picture is generally regarded as a classic of global cinema and one of the finest films ever produced. Additionally, the film's visual approach impacted a number of filmmakers, including George Lucas, Sam Peckinpah, Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, Brian De Palma, Oliver Stone, and Steven Spielberg, who referred to the picture as a "wonder."

Lawrence of Arabia location: El Casino, Seville, SpainâJerusalem's civic buildings are located in the Plaza of the Americas to the south (as Tangier in John Milius' 1975 epic The Wind and the Lion starring Candice Bergen and Sean Connery), while âDamascus' town hall, the Arab council chamber, is located in the nearby circular El Casino, Avenida de Maria Luisa.

If this seems to be an odd location for the site where a young Lawrence developed a respect for the Arab world, the solution is really about a mile east of the settlement. The remains of Carchemish are located on a promontory above a Euphrates ford. While human occupancy on that mountaintop stretches back at least 5,000 years, it was a desire to decipher the Hittites' secrets, a civilisation that peaked in the 11th century B.C., that drew a 22-year-old Lawrence here in 1911. Even before Carchemish, there were indications that T.E. Lawrence would be well-known in some capacity. Born in 1888, the second son of an upper-middle-class British family, his almost paralyzing shyness concealed a bright intellect and a strong independent streak.

"The David Lean touch gilds everything (...) [Peter O'Toole] does an outstanding job portraying Lawrence in his intricate and weighty part."

"Vast, awe-inspiring, breathtakingly gorgeous with ever-changing colours, tiring, and humanity-devoid (...) [It] lacks the magnetic personality, the haunting strain of mysticism and poetry that we've been anticipating for years."
