I saw it in Puerto Rico, first run. It gave me the background that I needed to understand what I was about to see. I was barely 13 and knew nothing about Lawrence and Arabia. It was a good introduction.There was an international prologue, that ran at the tail of the overture, before the logo, which gave historical background. It may have been used briefly, but I found no evidence. DL felt it unnecessary for the reconstruction, but it does serve as a very interesting artifact.
it’s being seen here for the first time since December of 1962.
