“Lawrence Of Arabia” Coming On Bluray

When I saw this deluxe packaging for the upcoming Bluray of “Lawrence of Arabia” (Nov. 13 release) I snorted like Homer Simpson thinking of donuts. And I don’t even have a Bluray player. Over the years, “Lawrence” was cut from its original length — a 187-minute version was released in the early 1970s to get more showing. But in 1989, a restored ‘director’s cut’ done by Robert A. Harris and Jim Painten under Lean’s supervision was released.
