The story of T.E. Lawrence, the English officer who successfully united and led the diverse, often warring, Arab tribes during World War I in order to fight the Turks.
Peter O'Toole was often injured during filming. He received third-degree burns, sprained both ankles, torn ligaments in both his hip and thigh, broken his thumb, dislocated his spine, fractured his skull, was bitten by a camel, sprained his neck, tore a groin ... ...
He was the most extraordinary man I ever knew.
Vicar at St. Paul's: Did you know him well?
Colonel Brighton: I knew him.
Vicar at St. Paul's: Well nil nisi bonum. But did he really deserve a place here?
When Lawrence is showing off in his new Arab dress, the shadows are initially long, but in the next shot have suddenly shortened.
The opening credits read: Introducing Peter O'Toole as T.E. Lawrence. However, O'Toole had already played very noticeable roles in two feature-length films, the Disney 1960 version of Kidnapped (1960), and The Day They Robbed the Bank of England (1960).
