This Month's Film: Lawrence of Arabia
Cuisine: Middle Eastern

One of cinema's greatest epics, Lawrence of Arabia is based on the life of T.E. Lawrence, a British scholar and archaeologist with extensive expertise in Middle Eastern language, culture, and history. The story takes place in the midst of World War I, when Lawrence (Peter O'Toole) was dispatched to Saudi Arabia by the British army as a military intelligence officer to aid in the uprising of the Bedouins against the Turks.
