The greatest stories of the Old Testament are brought to the screen with astounding scope and power in this international film, which depicts the first 22 chapters of Genesis. This is the spectacular story of manâ€™s creation, his fall, his survival and his indomitable faith in the future. Matching the epic scale of the production are performances by George C. Scott as Abraham, Ava Gardner as Sarah, and Peter Oâ€™Toole as the haunting presence of the Angel of God. The legendary John Huston directs and delivers a commanding performance as Noah. From the filmâ€™s opening amidst cosmic chaos, to its lingering message of hope and salvation, The Bible stands as a monumental motion picture achievement.
The first movie ever filmed in cinemascope, THE ROBE was nominated for five Academy Awards in 1952, including Best Picture and Best actor for Richard Burton. Burton stars as Marcellus Gallio, the Roman centurian charged with overseeing the crucifixion. But when he wins Christâ€™s robe in a gambling game at the foot of the cross, his life is forever changed.
Its inspired story set to a spectacular score, and featuring an all-star cast, including Victor Mature and Jean Simmons, THE ROBE remains one of the screenâ€™s greatest biblical epics.
DEMETRIUS AND THE GLADIATORS:
This enormously successful sequel to The Robe continues the story of Demetrius (Victor Mature), the Greek slave who, after the death of his master, is sentenced to train as a gladiator in the Roman arena. There, his newfound Christian faith is put to the test when he has to content not only with the swordsmen and the wild beasts of the arena, but also the evil and sensuous Messalina (Susan Hayward) and the mad emperor Caligula (Jay Robinson). Crammed with astonishing action and fight sequences, this heroic epic is not to be missed!
