"Lawrence of Arabia" (1962) Some of the actors playing Arabs aren't Arabs at all, and it wasn't shot in Arabia (actually Morocco, Jordan and Spain, plus California), but the endless expanse of sand dunes, handsome young Peter O'Toole, exotic people and the blazing sun of the desert will make you long to become a nomad. Refreshments: pita filled with falafel or tabbouleh drizzled with yogurt. To drink: hibiscus tea. Peter O'Toole as adventurer T.E. Lawrence.
