Lawrence Of Arabia

This is the 202-minute version of David Lean’s 1962 classic, 14 minutes shorter than the restored 70-millimeter versionstill a good movie, though you may want to hold out for another chance to see it bigger and longer. Peter O’Toole plays the enigmatic T.E. Lawrence; Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, and Omar Sharif are among the Arabs he lords it over, and Jose Ferrer plays a nasty Turk. There’s also a lot of sand, spectacle, and homoeroticism. (JR)
