Trivia

Omar Sharif was already a big star in his native Egypt when he got the call to meet Producer Sam Spiegel in a hotel in Cairo. When he agreed to make a screentest, Spiegel flew him to Jordan. In his autobiography, Sharif would marvel that a Jew from Hollywood had gotten something from the Egyptian government the native-born Sharif had been trying to get for years, an exit visa.


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 in here?


Goofs

After the dissolution of the Arab Council, Ali disappears into the shadows leaving Auda alone by the reflecting pool. He looks briefly at the reflected moon in it, then turns toward camera as if to stare directly at it. But for the moon's reflection to be visible to the camera, the moon must be behind him.


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).


Alternate Versions

The 1983 Capacitance Electronic Disc (CED), also commonly known RCA Selectavision Videodisc contains the 1971 re-release version which was rated "G" by the MPAA.
