5.0 out of 5 stars A great film, 21 Oct 2013
This is a long film which shows the main activities carried out by T. E. Lawrence in Arabia. Peter O'Toole portrays Lawrence as a bit eccentric and eclectic - very good acting. Having heard of Lawrence, but with no detail, it was interesting to see this film and the context in which he operated. David Lean was one of the producers and his films are brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good adaptation, 21 Oct 2013
I saw this film years ago and have also read Conrad's book. Although the film doesn't follow the book faithfully, it is a good representation of it. Peter O'Toole is an amazing actor. One would hope the film might inspire folk to read the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 21 Oct 2013
I enjoyed the story very much, especially as I was visiting the area. The only slightly irritating aspect was that the heroine did seem to me a bit dim occasionally.
