By the Gods!

Jay Robinson, Jean Simmons and Richard Burton amidst the grand set of THE ROBE

The first film shot in CinemaScope. The sets in this film are grand. They needed to be since they had to fill the widescreen image. I prefer the sequel, DEMETRIUS & TE GLADIATORS. It is good but there's a certain lack of conviction to it that prevents it from being great.

Though I am in no way a religious person, I really like this movie. It has splendid production design, and so many great actors

Local TV used to show this at Easter every year when I was a kid.
