11. Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
An amazing desert epic adventure that was far ahead of its time! David Lean won Best Director and it’s easy to see why with how masterful of a film he was able to create. While the movie was able to capture 7 Oscars, none were in the acting categories. However, that does not take away from the amazing performances of Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif. This is a film that needs to be seen in order to believe that it was released in 1962!
The sound, score, and scope of the film are all worth taking the time to watch this film. It was also incredibly long for the time period, being well over three hours. Do not allow that to deter you, as the time was well spent and allowed for an extremely captivating story to be told!
Brilliant list. Forgot about a lot of these so i will be spending some time watching them,especially Bridge over the River Kwai and All about Eve.. Thanks
I’m glad you enjoyed it Caroline. I try to keep my Journalistic integrity even on these lists. Some incredible films were on this list. You are very welcome!
