The Transnational in Film Production of the 1950s
This chapter studies the international dimensions of filmmaking, which have been widely ignored by film studies. It identifies the advantages of international filmmaking, and examines Lawrence of Arabia as an international film of the 1950s from the perspectives of the foreign government, national technical crews and extras, and the producer. It shows that Hollywood's film industry has always depended on international production. This chapter also discusses the film's reception, the film's director, David Lean, and one of the non-Western actors, Omar Sharif.
