The Robe (1953)

 Starring Jean Simmons, Richard Burton, Victor Mature, Ben A. Astar, Helen Beverly
Directed by Henry Koster

Print: Color
Runtime: 135 min.
Genre: Drama

The first movie ever filmed in CinemaScope, THE ROBE ws nominated for five Academy Awards in 1953, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Richard Burton. Burton stars as Marcellus Galilo, the Roman centurian charged with overseeing the crucifixion. But when he wins Christ's robe in a gambling game at the foot of the cross, his life is forever changed.



Demetrius and the Gladiators (1954)


Starring Victor Mature, Susan Hayward, Michael Rennie, Debra Paget, Anne Bancroft
Directed by Delmer Daves

Print: Color
Runtime: 101 min.
Genre: Action/Adventure

Rome, soon after the death of Christ. The depraved and mad Caligula is on the throne, obsessed with two things: the Robe, the garment that fell from Jesus' shoulders on the cross, and brutal gladiatorial displays. Victor Mature is the devout Christian entrusted with the Robe by Peter (Michael Rennie). But he turns his back on God, enters the arena, and becomes the most famous gladiator in Rome. Sharing the bed of the powerful and diabolical Messalina (Susan Hayward), he may even betray the Robe - and any hope he has for redemption!


 


The Big Fisherman (1959)


Starring Howard Keel, Susan Kohner, John Saxon, Martha Hyer, Herbert Lom, Alexander 
Scourby, Beulah Bondi
Directed by Frank Borzage

Print: color
Runtime: 180 min.
Genre: drama
Print Quality: B

The lush romanticism of director Frank Borzage (Seventh Heaven, Street Angel) is 
subsumed by the plodding reverence of producer Rowland V. Lee's screenplay (co-written 
with Howard Estabrook), based on the best-selling novel by Lloyd C. Douglas. Howard Keel 
stars as a stalwart Simon-Peter, the apostle of Christ called "the fisher of men" and the 
"Rock" upon whom the Christian Church was founded. The film, on the surface, deals with 
Simon-Peter's conversion from a self-sufficient fisherman to a believer in the inspirational 
teachings of Christianity. Simon-Peter also serves the needs of the real story: how Simon-
Peter succeeds in joining together two lovers from the other side of the tracks. John Saxon 
is Voldi, an Arab prince who wants to follow in his father's footsteps as the chief of an Arab 
tribe and marry his beloved, Fara (Susan Kohner). But Fara, wants to see her father, Herod 
Antipas (Herbert Lom), dead for the misery he has inflicted upon her mother — abandoning 
her for the lustful Herodias (Martha Hyer). When Voldi and Fara hear the teachings of Christ, 
they realize that their love must be put in abeyance to their Christian beliefs.
