Did You Know?

Trivia

Peter O'Toole was considerably taller and better looking than the real T.E. Lawrence (6'2" to Lawrence's real life height of 5'5"). Noël Coward is rumoured to have said, on seeing the première, "If he'd been any prettier, they'd have had to call it Florence of Arabia."


Quotes

Colonel Brighton: 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?


Goofs

In the attack on Aqaba, a white pickup truck can be seen in the background parked next to some white buildings.


Crazy Credits

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).
