By the Gods!

Miriam (Dolores Costello) is about to be sacrificed in NOAH'S ARK (1928)

This movie has many spectacular scenes, including this one and yet it's rarely brought up when the subject of spectacular scenes from movies set in Antiquity comes up. It's one of the most overlooked films of the era. It's probably due to the fact that the film takes places in different eras, scenes set during modern times to contrast with those set in the past. Dolores, one of the most popular actresses of the silent period, was the mother of future PEPLUM star John Drew Barrymore.

Your photo indicates that plenty of $$$ was spent on production values.

The plot as outlined on Wikipedia is beyond bizarre.
