LAWRENCE OF ARABIA
November 27, 2019  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
In this 1962 epic film directed by David Lean, Peter O’Toole, as the title character, is a Lean, mean fighting machine. O’Toole plays T.E. Lawrence, the English officer who led the divided, often warring Arab tribes during World War I in a war against the Turks. Try to translate all that to today’s political and geographic landscape, and your head will spin.
