Clark Art Presents 'Lawrence of Arabia'
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Thursday, Dec. 7, the Clark Art Institute continues its series of British films honoring the birthplace of Sir Edwin Manton during its Manton Research Center building's fiftieth anniversary.
The Clark shows "Lawrence of Arabia" at 6 pm in its auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center.
According to a press release:
A colossal epic about the World War I Arab revolt, Lawrence of Arabia centers on a strange and fascinating performance from then-unknown Peter O'Toole as British officer and archaeologist T.E. Lawrence. One stunning set piece follows another: the entrance of Sherif Ali (Omar Sharif) through a mirage, then the capture of the town of Aqaba and the attack on a Turkish train. Robert Bolt and Michael Wilson's script asks searching questions about identity and loyalty. The ultimately grim view of British intervention in Arab affairs remains all too relevant. (Run time: 3 hours, 42 minutes)
