SCROOGE (1951)

Alastair Sim plays the title character in what was considered for decades to be maybe the definitive version of the Dickens story, though I was a little thrown by the way the movie makes up a bunch of extra bits of Scrooge’s origin story for no discernible reason.

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (1962)

Maybe the most epic epic ever made, about a weird guy in the desert.
