Lawrence Of Arabia Tops British Film Poll

The panoramic epic LAWRENCE OF ARABIA has been crowned the best British film of all time.

The 1962 cinematic biography of the enigmatic T E LAWRENCE - played by PETER O'TOOLE - won a total of seven OSCARS and has now been hailed the UK's finest big screen achievement, according to a survey by THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH newspaper.

The film's late director SIR DAVID LEAN also dominated the poll with his other works - four of his movies featured in the top 10 list.

Lean's BRIEF ENCOUNTER - starring TREVOR HOWARD and CELIA JOHNSON - bagged second place, while his adaptation of CHARLES DICKENS' novel GREAT EXPECTATIONS came in fourth.

The poll also hailed MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN as the Best British Comedy.
