Everything, including performances, is turned up to eleven, and what it lacks in finesse it more than makes up for in sheer spectacle. Full Review

Rating: 5/10 -- It's hard to actively hate anything as deeply earnest as The Robe, but it is a long, tough sit. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Tthe mightiness of masses and the forms of heroes have never loomed so large as they do in this studied demonstration, projected by CinemaScope. But an unwavering force of personal drama is missed in the size and the length of the show. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Had it not been the first film shot in CinemaScope, very few people would probably still be talking about The Robe. Full Review

Product Description:

Based on a best-selling novel by Lloyd C. Douglas, THE ROBE is one of the best Biblical epics of all time. Richard Burton stars as Marcellus Gallio, a Roman who, after leading the crucifixion of Christ, takes home Jesus’ robe and is subsequently torn by nightmares and guilt. A distraught Marcellus makes his way back to Palestine, where a humble attempt to discover more about the man who died by his hand puts him on a miraculous path toward redemption. Originally released in 1953, this crisp and vibrant film was one of the first to be filmed in beautiful, expansive CinemaScope. It was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best (Color) Cinematography, Best (Color) Costume Design, and Best (Color) Set Direction-Art Direction. Jean Simmons, Victor Mature, and Jay Robinson offer stellar supporting roles.
