Did You Know?
Peter O'Toole's performance as T.E. Lawrence is the #1 ranked performance of all time in Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Performances of All Time.
It's perhaps only because it can't be seen in its full glory on television that Lawrence isn't ranked more highly on some recent all-time best film lists. But it belongs near the very top. It's an astonishing, unrepeatable epic.
