    Lara and The Doctor

    A secret package arrived at CIA headquarters in January 1958. Inside were two rolls of film from British intelligence — pictures of the pages of a Russian-language novel titled “Doctor Zhivago.”

    The book, by poet Boris Pasternak, had been banned from publication in the Soviet Union. The British were suggesting that the CIA get copies of the novel behind the Iron Curtain. The idea immediately gained traction in Washington.

    “This book has great propaganda value,”

    and i started to watch it. never knew there was a remake. must say i like it better than the sugar syrup sweet original. though a little bit less english accent from the actors would have been nice.
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....
