...TE Lawrence, eponymously of Arabia, but very much an Englishman favored pinching a burning match between his fingers to put it out. When asked by his colleague William Potter to reveal his trick, how is it so effectively he extinguished the flame without hurting himself whatsoever? Lawrence just smiled and said the trick Potter is not minding it hurts. The fire that danced at the end of that match was a gift from the Titan Prometheus....thank you.

The trick, Quint, is not minding that it is a camel.

is this some kind of lost/deleted scene???

They simply do not come close to this any more. What a gift to us all. And please, let's hurry with the blu ray before this media is dead and my only HD recourse is bad transfers on MGM HD or buying through iTunes.
May 27, 2012, 3:41 p.m. CST
....and Peter O'Toole doesn't (I mean for a performance, not that "Honorary" thing). So does Russel Fucking Crowe, Nicholas Fucking Cage, Halle Fucking Berry, Sandra Fucking Bullock and Fucking Cher. That pretty much tells you all you need to know about the fucking AMPAS. T.

"Peter O'Toole fucking with a camel." It's always sad to see the English language abused and reduced to profanity, but to do so in reference to a classic gentleman such as O'Toole? Very classy, Quint. Very classy.

otool was a hardcore drinker curser and fucker...and he is most certainly fucking with a camel you moronic, faux-offended, pretentio-prudish twat.
May 27, 2012, 6:46 p.m. CST
If you say Peter O'Toole is fucking with a camel, please show Peter O'Toole actually fucking a camel, because showing him doing it figuratively is a naughty tease, you bad boy!

You know it's not an AICN talkback column until there are 2 or more TBers going back-and-forth about something stupid.

the eight time o'toole was nominated, he lost to gregory peck, rex harrison, cliff robertson, john wayne, marlin brando, robert deniro, ben kingsley and forrest whitaker. his best chances to win were for becket (harrison won for my fair lady) but he was also up against peter sellers for dr strangelove and his very best chance was for the lion in winter where he lost to cliff robertson, with a pretty weak field of noms (arkin, bates, moody).

They NEED to re-release this into theaters, as that's really the only way to see it. You may have a big-ass plasma set-up, but it ain't big enough for Lawrence of Arabia
May 27, 2012, 8 p.m. CST
Gotta appreciate that in a film. Too often today, movies use sex appeal to promote a product. Not Lawrence of Arabia.
May 27, 2012, 8:30 p.m. CST
But I guess that's what happens when you're stuck in the desert with a bunch of dudes...you dance around in white silk curtains.

Those rumors should be true. I'm not sure why more studios aren't announcing (and sticking to) a lineup of home video releases, giving the folks who buy this stuff ample heads up for stuff hitting Blu. Pre-Orders are all the rage these days.<P> This year is gonna be a banner year for Blu.<P> Jaws, E.T., The Indy set, Dick Tracy, Hocus Pocus, Arachnophobia, Clue, and The Boogens are all titles I'm looking forward to picking up.<P> And they haven't even started announcing the Xmas time titles.<P> I hope Lawrence of Arabia hits Blu-Ray sometime before Xmas, so I can gets it from that fat elf home invader.

it stands to reason that the nearby village went without SEX EDUCATION and DRIVERS EDUCATION for the week.

I'm not saying it's a better film, but I enjoy it all the way through more than I enjoy Lawrence after the intermission, when that journalist shows up.

Does anyone else remember a visit by Peter O'Toole a number of years ago? He came riding in on a beautiful little camel named Flopsie. The audeince went crazy, of course, and before being led off, Peter O'Toole gave her a can of beer to drink as a gift for his "noble steed." I still have the Betamax tape (yes any number of Betaphiles are still around!). Unfortunately, camels have a bad reputation, and like any other creature on the planet, including humans, will respond with respect and affection when treated well...and they get along with Arabian horses just fine!

...LOA makes a good double feature with THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND. Because both movies are, in fact, about westerners who see the Third World as something to play with. Heck, minor characters even directly accuse the protagonist of that in both films. TE Lawrence just plays his game better than Nick Farrigan does.
May 28, 2012, 6:17 a.m. CST
That fucker Eminem has one as well!
May 28, 2012, 6:19 a.m. CST
...either for this or for BECKET is that in both movies he's up against serious competition WITHIN THE MOVIES THEMSELVES and he blows it away. In BECKET he's up against fucking Burton for fuck's sake, and every time they're both on the screen it's like Burton's not even there, it's like O'Toole is acting against Troy McClure.
