Lawrence of Arabia

He was the most extraordinary man
I ever knew.

Did you know him well?
I knew him.
Well, nil nisi bonum.
But did he really deserve...
...a place in here?
Lord Allenby, could you give
a few words about Lawrence?

What, more words?
The revolt in the desert...
...played a decisive part
in the Middle Eastern campaign.

Yes, sir, but about
Colonel Lawrence himself.

No, no. I didn't know him well,
you know.

Mr. Bentley, you know as much
about Lawrence as anybody.

Yes, it was my privilege to know him.
And to make him known to the world.
He was a poet, a scholar
and a mighty warrior.

Thank you.
He was also the most shameless
exhibitionist since Barnum and Bailey.

You, sir. Who are you?
My name is Jackson Bentley.
I overheard your last remark
and take the gravest exception.

-He was a great man.
-Did you know him?
