Possibly one of the most mysterious clips and figures I’ve come across in 10 yrs of footage research, this is T.E. Lawrence, otherwise known as Lawrence of Arabia, dining at a picnic in the USA (1935).

Well documented for his achievements during the Arab revolt in 1916, his possible conflict of interest in promoting Arab independence and alleged masochism, Lawrence was also a keen archaeologist, writer and motorcyclist.
He died of a motorcycling accident after swerving to avoid hitting a young boy on a bicycle.
