Doctor Zhivago

Here's a magnificent epic that is slightly overlong, which lies its only flaw. Omar Sharif stars as a wealthy Russian doctor who is negatively effected by World War I and the Russian Revolution. A great, star-studded cast including Geraldine Chaplin, Julie Christie, Alec Guiness and Rod Steiger (as well as enormous popularity upon release) seals the undisputed fact that "Doctor Zhivago" is simply a great Hollywood classic.
