Pontius Pilate (Lowell Gilmore) interrogates Jesus (Robert Wilson) in DAY OF TRIUMPH (1954)

Interesting Biblical movie in which Jesus is finally portrayed and not just a mysterious presence as it was in most Biblical movies at the time, including BEN-HUR (1959). So, in this regard the movie was a breakthrough of sorts. It's stagey but the script is pretty good for its low budget. It's runtime is supposed to be 1 hour and 50 minutes but most uploads have it at 1 hour and 47 minutes. My copy, though, is at 1 hour 56 minutes. The director died months before the movie was completed and released.
