Some $15,000,000, around three years in time, much hardship, and incredible logistics have been poured into this kingsize adventure yarn. It is the first film from from Spiegel-David Lean since they launched the Oscar-winning “Bridge on the River Kwai” five years ago. Shapes as an equally vivid, smash b.o. success.

Made in Technicolor and Super Panavision 70 it is a sweepingly produced, directed and lensed job. Authentic desert locations, a stellar cast and an intriguing subject combine to put this into the blockbuster league.

Rich.
