Lawrence of Arabia
A true example of classic cinema.
David Lean’s 1962 multi-Oscar winning epic dramatisation of the story of T E Lawrence, played by Peter O’Toole, in his breakthrough role.
The story centres around Lawrence’s time as a British Army Officer in the Ottoman Empire during the First World War and his work amongst the warring factions.
With an excellent supporting cast including Omar Shariff, Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn and Jack Hawkins the film won 7 Academy Awards.
The enduring popularity of the movie helps to make original cinema advertising pieces very popular, and the main poster’s depiction of the face of O’Toole as Lawrence is surely one of the best known of all poster images.
This is an original US Lobby Card from the set of 8 produced for the film’s first release. As well as featuring an evocative desert battle scene, it also benefits from the Lawrence/O’Toole image as its border artwork.
Very good original condition with no pinholes, tears or stains.
