IMDB Quote:

Peter O'Toole is considerably taller and better looking than the real Lawrence (6'3" to Lawrence's real life height of 5'6").

Noel Coward is rumored to have said, on seeing the premiere,

"If he'd been any prettier, they'd have had to call it
Florence of Arabia."

And again, we see authorized T.E. Lawrence biographer Jeremy Wilson being no happy bunny.
