By the Gods!

 Jesus (Robert Le Vigan) is judged by Pontius Pilate (Jean Gabin) in GOLGOTHA (1935) 

This rare PEPLUM movie from the 1930s is pretty good. It's a French production and I have the French version but I'm currently watching the English dubbed version and it's excellent. One of the best dubs ever made. It almost sounds like the original production was in English. It's also one of the best Biblical movies I've ever watched. It's a short but there's something great about a production from the 1930s, which were meticulous with so many details, that makes it extra special. The runtime for the original is 95 minutes. This English copy is 92 minutes. Overall, it's a classy production. Also known as BEHOLD THE MAN.

Years ago I watched an Italian movie Il Figlio Del Uomo, and even managed to get a copy on VHS. Since then I lost the copy and never heard of that movie. It was in b/w. Shot in Pasolini style story.
