Description by OLDIES.com:

The King Of Kings is the Greatest Story Ever Told as only Cecil B. DeMille could tell it. In 1927, working with the biggest budget in the history of Hollywood, DeMille spun the life and Passion of Christ into one of the highest-grossing films of all time. Featuring text drawn directly from the Bible, a cast of thousands, and a cinematic bag of tricks that could belong to none other than Hollywood's greatest showman, The King Of Kings is at once spectacular and deeply reverent-part Gospel, part Technicolor epic. Criterion is proud to present one of the best-loved films ever made in a two-disc edition featuring both the 112 minute general release version and the rarely seen 155 minute cut that premiered at the grand opening of Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

Plot Synopsis:

Cecil B. DeMille interprets the life of Christ through the eyes of Mary Magdalene in this original silent epic featuring the infamous parting of the Red Sea.

Plot Keywords:

Bible Epic | Biblical | Classic | History | Recommended | Religion | Silent

Production Notes:

  • Novelist and philosopher Ayn Rand was an extra in this film and can be seen only fleetingly in several crowd scenes. It was during the filming of THE KING OF KINGS that she met her lifelong husband, Frank O'Connor, who played a Roman soldier.
