- Synopsis / Plot
- While working on the staff of the British Intelligence in Cairo in 1916, Lawrence (Peter O'Toole) is sent to a mission to establish contact with Prince Feisal (Alec Guinness), leader of the Arab revolt and ally of the British against the German-sponsored Turks in WWI. Impressed by Lawrence's knowledge of their culture, the prince allows the young officer to join his staff, and Lawrence quickly earns the respect from the Arabs after he executes acts of extraordinary heroism. As Lawrence's genius for guerrilla warfare becomes evident, he assumes the role of de facto leader of the Arab revolt, uniting the heretofore warring tribes into a devastatingly effective weapon.
