Doctor Zhivago: Theatrical Trailer (1965)

Maurice Jarre - Doctor Zhivago's Theme for Lara


A Russian epic, the movie traces the life of surgeon-poet Yury Zhivago (Omar Sharif)  before and during the Russian Revolution. Married to an upper-class girl ( Geraldine Chaplin) who is devoted to him, yet in love with an unfortunate woman (Julie Christie) who becomes his muse, Zhivago is torn between fidelity and passion. Sympathetic with the revolution but shaken by the wars and purges, he struggles to retain his individualism as a humanist amid the spirit of collectivism.

Omar Sharif's Eyes ... and Lara's Breasts ;0)

by Darius Kadivar on

I'm glad you both enjoyed this.

Yes Omar Sharif had the most expressive eyes ideal for the role and Julie Christie was unforgettable. I also liked Rod Steiger as the cruel womanizer but wise enough to try and save them both from certain death.

Who would have thought Omar Sharif an Egyptian could ever play a Russian so convincingly.

Great Star and Proves that some Movies are truly Universal.

Doctor Zhivago is certainly one of them ...




Julie Christie

is just magnificent in this film.

One of my best films

by Ryszard Antolak on

One of my best films of all time.

But it's a different experience from reading the novel, which contains all of Zivago's original poems to Lara in the appendix. Pasternak was a great poet. "Dr Zivago" was the only novel he ever published.Yet it was for the novel that he won the Nobel Prize. How ironic!

Whenever I re-read Dr Zivago, it is now Omar Sharif whom I see in my mind. The David Lean film was a true masterpiece.

Thanks Darius!
