NTSC/Region 0. The classic 1949 film produced and directed by Cecil B. DeMille and starring Victor Mature and Hedy Lamarr in the title roles. Samson is the legendary strongman in this story from the Bible who is first seduced and later betrayed by the beautiful Delilah. Samson is known as muscular and fearless in his barehanded battle with a lion, his single-handed assault on 1,000 philistine soldiers, his struggle with a giant and the spectacular climax where he pulls the pagan temple. But even Samson's strength has its weakness as there isn't a man in the world who won't share his secrets with some woman. Most men have been trapped by smiles rather than by ropes. Castaways.
