Round 1 Match: Lawrence of Arabia vs. The Pursuit of Happyness The polls will close for this match on Friday, October 19 at 12:00am A battle of one of the best modern day dramas, against one of the all-time classic films in Lawrence of Arabia. Will Smith's performance as a father living on the streets with his son (played by his actual son) is touching, deep and sometimes disturbing in the emotion the cast puts into their characters. But its opponent is still considered one of the best, after 50 years circulation. Can Smith's showing move past Arabia's 7 Academy wins?
