Doctor Zhivago (1965) was a Drama - Romance Film directed by David Lean and produced by Carlo Ponti and Arvid Griffen.
The film was based on the novel of the same name written by Boris Pasternak published in 1957.
The ultimate in mid-'60s, big-budget Hollywood filmmaking, with casts of thousands, exotic locations, strikingly beautiful stars, and the sheen that only money can buy. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Boris Pasternak, about a Russian surgeon and poet, married to one woman yet in love with another, who becomes a victim of the Russian Revolution. The 30th Anniversary edition includes a documentary on the marking of the film and is remastered.
