Director: David Lean
Actor: Peter O'Toole
The film opens in 1935 with Lawrence (Peter O'Toole) as a civilian gearing up for a ride on his motorcycle at his home Clouds Hill. While riding his motorbike down a narrow English country lane, Lawrence is killed when he tries to avoid a collision with two boys who are cycling on the wrong side of the road. At his memorial service at St Paul's Cathedral, reporters try to gain insights into this remarkable, enigmatic man from people who knew him, with little success.
