Elana Eden and Tom Tryon are doomed lovers in THE STORY OF RUTH (1960)

A super elaborate Biblical epic that's often overlooked. Directed by the same guy who made THE ROBE ten years prior. I admire the production, it's truly well mounted, even if some bits are pure Hollywood hokiness. Elana's first film and she only appeared in a couple of films before fading away. Who was she? As for Tom Tryon, his sporadic/troubled career as an actor in Hollywood is the stuff of legends.

This a very good movie, lite on action, but entertaining and even with the Hollywood perks here and there it sticks close to the accounts in the Bible. She was a beautiful actress, and the movie featured a lot of very good Character Actors.
