Zhivago: Peter O'Toole Tonya: Audrey Hepburn Lara: Sophia Loren(Mrs. Carlo Ponti, the producer who originally bought the rights for her to star in it) Komarovsky: Marlon Brando or James Mason Pasha/Streilnikov: Omar Sharif(he originally wanted this role but David Lean cast him as the lead instead).
My favorite scene is where they cut to the house covered in snow.
Greatest movie ever made.
“The personal life is dead”
Thanks for the reminder. Wonder if a similar (Bolshevik) revolution is to take place in the U.S. during or after Obama’s reign.
The mother’s funeral scene with the music is haunting.
conflict tonight.....Walking Dead or Dr Zhivago?
I had a high school buddy who worked as a theater usher (remember those?) when this movie was released. It played so long in the theater that he and the other usher memorized it word for word.
Excellent film. Some of my Russian ancestors fought in the Russian Revolution, but for the wrong (Red) side. Family history, I’m trying to verify it somehow so I’m not 100% here, says my great-great grandfather was one of the generals who knew Lenin although the story is he told his son to “get out of here” and go to America. Later on, my great-grandfather was drafted to fight World War I in the American Expeditionary Force.
Too depressing to watch. It reminds me of Obama’s plans for the rich and the middle class. What kind of people will be crowding into my home and hanging their laundry in my kitchen next year?
Not a fan of chick flix.
One of 2 or 3 movies I was roped into seeing around the mid sixties as a date movie.
Not my cup of tea. No...more specifically I hated thiis movie, ‘sound of music’ and a re release of ‘gone with the wind’. Women! They got me to many things I did not want to do.
Thank you for the heads-up! This is my favorite film so I’ll DVR while I’m watching Downton Abbey. Spend tomorrow with Dr. Z and Lara.
I saw the film at the Paramount Theater in Hollywood, Calif., in August, 1966.
Thank you. I’m watching. It’s one of my favorites of all time. When i first saw it as a young woman, all i saw was the romance. Now,all i see is dangerous foreshadowing. Reminds me of “he who beats his swords into ploughshares will be the slave of those who don’t.”
