The Greatest Story Ever Told is director George Stevens' magnificent Biblical film, handled with reverence, artistic appreciation and admirable restraint. The story of Jesus of Nazareth (played by Max Von Sydow), from his humble birth to his crucifixion and ultimate resurrection. Lavishly produced at a cost of $20 million - an enormous amount for the time - and honoured with five 1965 Academy Award nominations, this exceptional motion picture is exquisitely beautiful. It is at once the most spectacular and artistic biblical film ever made. This version includes the original intermission and overture.
