I’d seen both movies before, but hadn’t seen Lawrence of Arabia since I was a child (and I think that was on a not-very-good black-and-white television). The one thing I found most jarring about LoA was that most of the Arab characters were played by European actors. But it was unquestionably a great movie. As wispfox pointed out, Peter O’Toole’s acting was excellent.
Between movies, we took a trip to Pho 99 (sionnagh’s favourite restaurant in Malden, I believe) for dinner.
A great evening, but if we do this again with similarly long movies, we should only watch one at a time.
