Cecil B. de Mille's wildly entertaining Biblical parable stars the great Victor Mature in one of his finest roles, as the legendary desert strongman and rebel fighter, who loses his strength and his eye-sight for the love of ravishing Hedy Lamarr. One of the most breathtakingly beautiful Technicolor films made in Hollywood - seen here as audiences saw it back in 1949, in an original nitrate Technicolor print!! Academy Award winner for Best Art Direction and Costumes. Discussion following with actor Russ Tamblyn.
