The Nightmare Lawrence of Arabia

Say, all these actors are dead, aren't they?

That's ominous.

Wait'll you see the remake, with Anderthon Cooper and Tom Cruise.

Riding Shetlands.

De Witt, you are duh wit.

Yet somehow, Lean always seemed to get things right. I'm sure the suits were pushing these other choices.

Sometimes you have to wonder if anything quality that comes out of Hollywood is by mistake.

Every one of them, Chas. Considering LoA was made 53 years ago, I suppose that shouldn't be surprising.

Walt: fifty-three years. That's more than half a century. If I didn't feel old before, I do now.
In 1965 I was a year out of high school, going to college and feeling the Draft Board breathing down my neck.
Uncle Sam won the toss and I reckon I have few regrets over it all.

I remember seeing the film many years ago and thinking something was rather odd. Then I got a little background on Lawrence, and others who are drawn to this hellish corner of the world. A great spectacle created in the greatest(?)era of film.

Why don't we give this a try?
