Arabian Nights

The scene in Lawrence of Arabia I remember most starts with the camera panning up, which reveals that Lawrence is surrounded by men, close like a huddle. He looks up at the sky, and the panning camera, and says with conviction, “I love Arabia.” The way I’d say I like coffee or blowjobs.

This is how I will remember the now deceased Peter O’Toole. Which is unfair to the actor, since it was Lawrence himself that was sexually unusual, in that he denied ever having it.
