Welcome to the Cool Web Movie Database. So far we offer
information on the many brilliant films of David Lean:
soon, a lot more will be online.
Films with Sam Spiegel Productions
The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)
Produced by Sam Spiegel, this film was the first of the
Lean blockbuster movies, and featured a young Alec
Guinness, William Holden, and a brilliant performance
from Sessue Hayakawa.
Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
One of my all-time favorite movies, this epic
adventure starring Peter O'Toole established Lean as
a director who could truly envision film on a grand scale.
The Later Years
Doctor Zhivago (1965)
Ryan's Daughter (1970)
