Part of a Home Theater Forum discussion, including comments from restorer Robert Harris and film historian Adrian Turner:
Just as interesting, from my perspective, is that the film's most famous "missing" scene, Allenby's "seduction" of Lawrence to returning to the desert, has apparently been restored and will be included on the BRD as a special feature.
Suffice to say I'm extremely excited. I will bend arms, break legs, possibly even commit crimes to see Lawrence in theaters.
For those interested, Rave Motion Pictures in West Carrollton and Huber Heights will both be screening the re-release of this masterpiece on October, 4th at 1:00pm/7:00pm.
