I LOVE 1965

Dr Zhivago
RealMedia: Dr Zhivago

Dr Zhivago

Omar Sharif and Julie Christie headed up this adaption of Boris Pasternak's novel of the Russian Revolution.

The epic romance is captured in flashback form and shows pre-war Russia and the changing political controls. Amidst all the uncertainty Dr Zhivago begins a torrid love affair.

Writer Boris Pasternak won the Nobel Prize for his novel, but refused to accept the award.

No such problems for David Lean, whose film was nominated for 10 Ocars - it won five. Not a bad score at all.
