An Embodiment of Vision
This chapter examines David Lean's letter where he recounts his experiences in searching for possible locations to shoot Lawrence of Arabia. This letter reveals the creative process through which Lean came up with the images in this film. The chapter reviews some of the technological innovations that supported wide-screen processes of the 1960s and how it helped in the filming of the movie. This chapter also studies Peter O'Toole's theatrical training and career, in order to understand his performance in the film, and shows how the desert became a protagonist in the film and Lean's efforts to exert control over it.
