Product Details

David Lean demonstrates again why he's a peerless filmmaker of substance and scale, directing Boris Pasternak's tumultuous tale of Russia divided by war and hearts torn by love. Epic images abound: revolution in the streets, an infantry charge into No Man's Land, the train ride to the Urals, an icebound dacha. Golden Globe Best Actor Award winner Omar Sharif plays the title role, in love with Lara ( Julie Christie, the National Board of Review's Best Actress choice) and caught up in the tidal wave of history. Hauntingly scored by Maurice Jarre (who earned one of the film's five Academy Awards) and full of indelible performances, Doctor Zhivago (an American Film Institute Top- 100 American Films selection) is a moviemaking wonder.

More product details about Doctor Zhivago (1965)

A sprawling, visually stunning epic from David Lean, based on Boris Pasternak's massive novel. Sharif is the Russian doctor-cum-poet who marries Geraldine Chaplin, but later falls for the beautiful Lara (Julie Christie). The film takes in World War I and the Bolshevik Revolution, and its stunning set-pieces include the huge crowd scenes in Moscow, the train sequences and the beautiful snowy vistas. Oscars were given to Robert Bolt's screenplay, Freddie Young's cinematography, Phyllis Dalton's costume design, the art direction / set decoration by John Box and Terry Marsh, and Maurice Jarre's sweeping music score.
