One  of  the  screen's  grandest  epics,  this  monumental  story  recounts  the true  life  experiences  of  T.E.  Lawrence,  better  known  to  the  world  as Lawrence  of  Arabia.  A  young,  idealistic  British  officer  in  WWI,  Lawrence (Peter  O'Toole)  is  assigned  to  the  camp  of  Prince  Feisal  (Alec  Guinness),  an Arab  tribal  chieftain  and  leader  in  a  revolt  against  the  Turks.  In  a  series  of brilliant  tactical  maneuvers,  Lawrence  leads  fifty  of  Feisal's  men  in  a tortured  three  week  crossing  of  the  Nefud  Desert  to  attack  the  strategic Turkish  held  port  of  Aqaba.  And  following  his  successful  raids  against Turkish  troops  and  trains,  Lawrence's  triumphant  leadership  and unyielding  courage  gain  him  nearly  god-like  status  among  his  Arab brothers.
