I am missing the connection you are making with the 104 comment.

Lawrence of Arabia was pretty damn awesome even if it was long.

True. I haven't seen it. I should see it.

Peter O'Toole right?

Umm, yep. It is as good as people say it is, too.

Like Spartacus.

The british army generally has some cultural understanding and respect for customs. Much more suited to peacekeeping.

Wheras we bring dogs into their churches and use Saddam's prisons and torture chambers as our own prisons and...

The question is, being so hated, why the screw are we there?

also, smarty.

TO really do it right, find an art-house cinema that is showing the film.

The width to height ratio of the film print is mind boggling. A TV is maybe 4: 3 and HDTV is what? 16:9?

The film is shot at 2.2:1.

In most theatres it scrolls 5 feet off either side of the screen. and the cinematography! and Omar Sharif! and yes, Peter O'Toole.

and a lot of very very very long shots.
