DOCTOR ZHIVAGO
1965, Warner Brothers, 193 min, Dir: David Lean

This story of Czarists, revolutionaries, two beautiful women in love with the same man, a nation in upheaval - and, above all, the poet-physician (Omar Sharif) who witnesses and remembers it all - is one of the most lyrical, visually breathtaking films in the history of the medium. Co-starring Julie Christie, Geraldine Chaplin, Rod Steiger, Tom Courtenay and Alec Guinness, with sublime music by Maurice Jarre.


LAWRENCE OF ARABIA
1962, Sony Repertory, 216 min, UK / USA, Dir: David Lean

This sweeping epic of Arab infighting and British colonialism won seven Academy Awards including Best Picture. Director David Lean's masterpiece, lensed to perfection by Freddie Young and set to Maurice Jarre's majestic score, is based on the daring campaigns of real-life British military figure T.E. Lawrence during WWI. The amazing cast includes Peter O’Toole (in his first feature), Omar Sharif (in his first major English-speaking role as Sherif Ali), Anthony Quinn, Jack Hawkins, Claude Rains and Alec Guinness as Prince Feisal. Made to be seen on the big screen!
