Theres a very revealing scene at the end of the epic Lawrence of Arabia.
At the conclusion of a meeting with Lord Allenby (Jack Hawkins) where Lawrence has made several remarks Allenby finds hard to believe, Allenby comments to Lawrence Youre a good liar.
Prince Feisal (Alec Guiness), who is also in the room, turns and says He should be. Hes almost an Arab.
Yes, its only a movie but that scene speaks volumes about the folks with whom we will one day have to deal.
An excellent movie and an interesting piece of history. I've always found Lawrence an incredibly paradoxical enigma: Tactically brilliant and strategically naive.
One of my favorite movies. If I remembering correctly, Feisal seems to be saying that in a sarcastic way. The once scene I enjoy, and I think it definitely represents Arabs, is the “meeting” toward the end of the movie of all the Arabs after they have taken over Damascus.
