Alamo Drafthouse Houston says
Peter O'Toole was nominated for eight Oscars. He won none of them. To put this in perspective: his lead debut, LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, has him giving what is arguably the finest performance in the history of motion pictures to this day, and he lost the Oscar. To Gregory Peck in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, in all fairness. But still - Lawrence is the most towering, incredible character ever brought to life on movie screens.

That's where O'Toole started on screen (he had extensive stage work behind him, and he would always be a stage actor at heart), so it's no surprise he never topped it. How can you? Such perfection lays a long shadow across a career, and across a life.

Peter O'Toole isn't just phenomenal in LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, he's almost impossibly beautiful. His eyes are powerful and blue and absolutely mesmerizing, eyes that have the comfort of a desert oasis and the cruelty of a desert mirage. As Lawrence he's majestic and confused, imperious and playful, intense and loving.

A timeless cinema classic, director David Lean's Oscar-winning 1962 film was truly intended to be seen exclusively on the big screen -- with its lush cinematography, epic story, and Peter O'Toole's larger than life performance as the academic-cum-desert warrior.

Based on the true story of T.E. Lawrence, a young British army officer whose recon mission in the Arabian desert turns into an all-out heroic struggle to unite the scattered, warring desert tribes against the encroaching Turkish forces during WWI. LAWRENCE OF ARABIA is an expertly crafted portrait of clashing cultures, and of a man driven to the brink of madness by conflicting loyalties and his own unquenchable ambition.
