Lawrence Von Arabien Film Inhaltsverzeichnis VideoLawrence of Arabia - Main Theme - Maurice Jarre
Lawrence: He was my friend. Sherif: That! You are angry, English. He was nothing. The well is everything.
The Hasimi may not drink at our wells. He knew that. Lawrence: Sherif Ali, so long as the Arabs fight tribe against tribe, so long will they be a little people, a silly people, greedy, barbarous, and cruel, as you are.
Sherif: Come, I will take you to Feisal. Lawrence: I do not want your company, Sherif. Sherif: Wadi Safra is another day from here.
You will not find it. And not finding it, you will die. Lawrence: I will find it, with this. He holds up his compass which Sherif snags with his camel stick.
Sherif: Good Army compass. How if I take it? Lawrence: Then you would be a thief. Sherif: Have you no fear, English?
Lawrence: My fear is my concern. Sherif: Truly. God be with you, English. Lawrence rides off alone, singing before a rock surface and humorously listening for the echo [the compass is returned]:.
You could hear the girls declare. He must be a millionaire. You can rumpty-tumpty-tumpty-tum. I'm the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo. On a rock ledge above him, Lawrence receives echoing applause for his song from British Colonel Harry Brighton Anthony Quayle , who has been notified by Prince Feisal that he was expected.
According to Lawrence, his mission is to "appreciate the situation. Lawrence: I have been seconded to the Arab Bureau.
Brighton: Oh. What are you to do for the Arab Bureau? Lawrence: It's rather vague sir. I'm to 'appreciate' the situation. Brighton: Well, that won't be difficult.
The situation's bloody awful. The morale, if anybody had any, which I doubt, the Turks knocked out of them in front of Medina with howitzers.
They're fading away by dozens every night. What I want to say to you is this, that whatever you are, and whoever you're with, you're a British-serving officer and here's an order.
When we get into that camp, you're to keep your mouth shut. Do you understand what I'm saying? Feisel's camp is under attack from the Turks.
They are interrupted by the sounds of explosions and Turkish bi-planes flying overhead in an air-raid bombing attack on the camp.
Obviously indifferent to the needs of the Arabs, Brighton explains why the primitive Arabs are so vulnerable and how they ignored his suggestion to move south:.
Out of the billowing black smoke, Lawrence appears almost as an answer to the Prince's prayers. Demoralized and feeling defeated, Feisal realizes his sword, and other long-standing, archaic Arab methods of warfare, are powerless against the modern weaponry from the air.
You understand, Lieutenant Lawrence, my people are unused to explosives and machines. First the guns and now this. The thousands of Bedouins are amassed and moved further south for protection.

Crazy Credits The "Columbia" logo that begins the feature is still in original version. However, some versions like the general theatrical release replaces it with a animated one.
Alternate Versions In accordance with a decision by the Writers Guild of America to give Michael Wilson a co-writing credit based on documentary evidence that he had been a major contributor to the script , newer copies such as the DVD and the prints made for the 40th anniversary re-release feature the altered credit: "Screenplay by Robert Bolt and Michael Wilson" previously, only Bolt's name was listed.
Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Report this. Frequently Asked Questions Q: What was Robert Bolt's contribution to the script vs.
Hussein himself visited the set several times during production and maintained cordial relationships with cast and crew. The only tension occurred when Jordanian officials learned that English actor Henry Oscar did not speak Arabic but would be filmed reciting the Qur'an.
Permission was granted only on condition that an imam be present to ensure that there were no misquotations. Lean planned to film in Aqaba and the archaeological site at Petra , which Lawrence had been fond of as a place of study.
However, the production had to be moved to Spain due to cost and outbreaks of illness among the cast and crew before these scenes could be shot.
The Sierra Nevada mountains filled in for Azrak, Lawrence's winter quarters. All of the interiors were shot in Spain, including Lawrence's first meeting with Faisal and the scene in Auda's tent.
The Tafas massacre was filmed in Ouarzazate , Morocco, with Moroccan army troops substituting for the Turkish army; however, Lean could not film as much as he wanted because the soldiers were uncooperative and impatient.
The film's production was frequently delayed because shooting commenced without a finished script. Wilson quit early in the production, and playwright Beverley Cross worked on the script in the interim before Bolt took over, although none of Cross's material made it to the final film.
A further mishap occurred when Bolt was arrested for taking part in an anti-nuclear weapons demonstration, and Spiegel had to persuade him to sign a recognizance of good behaviour to be released from jail and continue working on the script.
O'Toole was not used to riding camels and found the saddle to be uncomfortable. During a break in filming, he bought a piece of foam rubber at a market and added it to his saddle.
Many of the extras copied the idea and sheets of the foam can be seen on many of the horse and camel saddles. Coincidentally, a very similar mishap befell the real Lawrence at the Battle of Abu El Lissal in Jordan banned the film for what was felt to be a disrespectful portrayal of Arab culture.
Rapid cutting was more disturbing on the wide screen, so filmmakers had to apply longer and more fluid takes. Shooting such a wide ratio produced some unwanted effects during projection, such as a peculiar "flutter" effect, a blurring of certain parts of the image.
To avoid the problem, the director often had to modify blocking, giving the actor a more diagonal movement, where the flutter was less likely to occur.
O'Toole did not share Lawrence's love of the desert and stated in an interview: "I loathe it. The film score was composed by Maurice Jarre , little known at the time and selected only after both William Walton and Malcolm Arnold had proved unavailable.
Jarre was given just six weeks to compose two hours of orchestral music for Lawrence. Sir Adrian Boult is listed as the conductor of the score in the film's credits, but he could not conduct most of the score, due in part to his failure to adapt to the intricate timings of each cue, and Jarre replaced him as the conductor.
The score went on to garner Jarre his first Academy Award for Music Score—Substantially Original  and is now considered one of the greatest scores of all time, ranking number three on the American Film Institute's top twenty-five film scores.
Producer Sam Spiegel wanted to create a score with two themes to show the 'Eastern' and British side for the film.
It was intended for Soviet composer Aram Khachaturian to create one half and British composer Benjamin Britten to write the other.
The original soundtrack recording was originally released on Colpix Records , the records division of Columbia Pictures, in A remastered edition appeared on Castle Music , a division of the Sanctuary Records Group, on 28 August Kenneth Alford 's march The Voice of the Guns is prominently featured on the soundtrack.
One of Alford's other pieces, the Colonel Bogey March , was the musical theme for Lean's previous film The Bridge on the River Kwai.
A complete recording of the score was not heard until when Tadlow Music produced a CD of the music, with Nic Raine conducting the City of Prague Philharmonic from scores reconstructed by Leigh Phillips.
The film premiered at the Odeon Leicester Square in London on 10 December Royal Premiere and was released in the United States on 16 December A post-premiere memo 13 December noted that the film was 24, Richard May, VP Film Preservation at Warner Bros.
Thus, Lawrence of Arabia is slightly more than 1 minute longer than Gone With the Wind and is, therefore, the longest movie ever to win a Best Picture Oscar.
The first round of cuts was made at the direction and even insistence of David Lean, to assuage criticisms of the film's length and increase the number of showings per day; however, during the restoration, he passed blame for the cuts onto deceased producer Sam Spiegel.
The film was screened out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival  and at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
Lawrence of Arabia was re-released theatrically in to celebrate the film's fortieth anniversary. A restored version was undertaken by Robert A. Harris and Jim Painten under the supervision of director David Lean.
It was released in with a minute length plus overture, intermission, and exit music. Most of the cut scenes were dialogue sequences, particularly those involving General Allenby and his staff.
Two whole scenes were completely excised—Brighton's briefing of Allenby in Jerusalem before the Deraa scene and the British staff meeting in the field tent—and the Allenby-briefing scene has still not been entirely restored.
Much of the missing dialogue involves Lawrence's writing of poetry and verse, alluded to by Allenby in particular, saying "the last poetry general we had was Wellington ".
The opening of Act II existed in only fragmented form, where Faisal is interviewed by Bentley, as well as the later scene in Jerusalem where Allenby convinces Lawrence not to resign.
Both scenes were restored to the re-release. Some of the more graphic shots of the Tafas massacre scene were also restored, such as the lengthy panning shot of the corpses in Tafas, and Lawrence shooting a surrendering Turkish soldier.
Most of the still-missing footage is of minimal import, supplementing existing scenes. One scene is an extended version of the Deraa torture sequence, which makes Lawrence's punishment more overt in that scene.
Other scripted scenes exist, including a conversation between Auda and Lawrence immediately after the fall of Aqaba , a brief scene of Turkish officers noting the extent of Lawrence's campaign, and the battle of Petra later reworked into the first train attack , but these scenes were probably not filmed.
The actors still living at the time of the re-release dubbed their own dialogue, though Jack Hawkins 's dialogue had to be dubbed by Charles Gray , who had already provided Hawkins' voice for several films after Hawkins developed throat cancer in the late s.
A full list of cuts can be found at the Internet Movie Database. On the evenings of 28 and 29 January , ABC broadcast the film over two evenings, due to the film's length.
Lawrence of Arabia has been released in five different DVD editions, including an initial release as a two-disc set ,  followed by a shorter single disc edition ,  a high resolution version of the director's cut with restored scenes issued as part of the Superbit series, as part of the Columbia Best Pictures collection , and in a fully restored special edition of the director's cut Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg helped restore a version of the film for a DVD release in According to Grover Crisp, executive VP of restoration at Sony Pictures, the new 8K scan has such high resolution that it showed a series of fine concentric lines in a pattern "reminiscent of a fingerprint" near the top of the frame.
This was caused by the film emulsion melting and cracking in the desert heat during production. Sony had to hire a third party to minimise or eliminate the rippling artefacts in the new restored version.
Upon its release, Lawrence of Arabia was a huge critical and financial success and it remains popular among viewers and critics alike.
The film's visuals, score, screenplay and performance by Peter O'Toole have all been common points of acclaim; the film as a whole is widely considered a masterpiece of world cinema and one of the greatest films ever made.
Additionally, its visual style has influenced many directors, including George Lucas , Sam Peckinpah , Stanley Kubrick , Martin Scorsese , Ridley Scott , Brian De Palma , Oliver Stone , and Steven Spielberg , who called the film a "miracle".
The American Film Institute ranked Lawrence of Arabia 5th in its original and 7th in its updated Years In , the film placed third in the British Film Institute's poll of the best British films of the 20th century, and in the magazine Total Film called it "as shockingly beautiful and hugely intelligent as any film ever made" and "faultless".
Lawrence, portrayed by O'Toole, was selected as the tenth-greatest hero in cinema history by the American Film Institute.
Some critics—notably Bosley Crowther  and Andrew Sarris  —have criticised the film for an indefinite portrayal of Lawrence and lack of depth.
Film director Steven Spielberg considers this his favourite film of all time and the one that inspired him to become a filmmaker. In , Lawrence of Arabia was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and selected for preservation in the United States Library of Congress National Film Registry.
In , the made-for-television film A Dangerous Man: Lawrence After Arabia was aired. It depicts events in the lives of Lawrence and Faisal subsequent to Lawrence of Arabia and featured Ralph Fiennes as Lawrence and Alexander Siddig as Prince Faisal.

British Board of Film Classification. Archived from the original on 8 October Hier begegnet er dem fremden Reiter wieder und lernt ihn als den mächtigen Sherif Ali kennen.
Er nennt den Arabern Damaskus als das ehrgeizige Ziel des Kriegszuges. Lawrence überredet Sherif Ali, mit ihm und einem kleinen Trupp von 50 Mann unter hohem Risiko die kaum passierbare Wüste Nefud zu durchqueren und so in den Rücken der zur See hin gut geschützten Hafenstadt Akaba zu gelangen.
Den Kameraden Gasim, der beim nächtlichen Ritt durch die Wüste vom Kamel stürzt und zurückbleibt, rettet er durch seine tollkühn erscheinende Umkehr in der glühenden Tageshitze.
Später muss er ausgerechnet Gasim als Mörder hinrichten, um eine Blutfehde zwischen den Arabern zu verhindern. Zu seinem Schrecken muss er sich im Nachhinein eingestehen, dass er diese Tat genossen hat.
Vor Akaba gewinnt er mit psychologischem Geschick die Unterstützung lokaler Stämme unter Auda Abu Tayi und nimmt die Stadt im Überraschungsangriff ein.
Nach dem Sieg verfällt die Disziplin der arabischen Kämpfer, die nur an Kriegsbeute interessiert sind und nicht an langfristige Erfolge denken. Es gelingt Lawrence jedoch, durch eine Guerillataktik weitere Erfolge gegen die Türken und deren Versorgungslinien zu erzielen.
Einer der Waisenjungen stirbt später im Treibsand vor den Augen von Lawrence, der andere wird bei einem Unfall mit Sprengpatronen schwer verletzt und von Lawrence erschossen, um ihn vor der türkischen Gefangenschaft zu bewahren.
Lawrence beginnt, sich in seiner Selbstüberschätzung für nahezu unverwundbar zu halten. Inkognito sucht er die Stadt Dera im südlichen Syrien auf, wird dort aber von türkischen Soldaten, die ihn nicht erkennen, festgenommen und misshandelt.
Durch diese Demütigung fast gebrochen kehrt er nach Kairo zurück, um seine Entlassung aus dem britischen Militär zu erbitten.
Dort erfährt er, dass die britische und die französische Regierung keineswegs beabsichtigen, den Arabern nach dem Krieg ihre Unabhängigkeit zuzubilligen.
Deshalb fasst er den Entschluss, gemeinsam mit den Arabern noch vor den Briten Damaskus einzunehmen, um so einen späteren Einfluss der Briten zu verhindern.
Mit einer Gruppe frisch angeheuerter Leibwächter macht er sich auf den Weg. Gegen den Willen Alis kommt es zu einem Massaker an Soldaten der geschlagenen türkischen Armee, die sich auf dem Rückzug befindet.
Die Araber erreichen Damaskus kurz vor den Briten. Die Araber sind zu zerstritten, um eine funktionierende Regierung zu bilden und sich so dem Einfluss der Kolonialmächte zu entziehen.
