Rating: C+ -- Admittedly dull, overlong and kitschy, the film was dismissed as embarrassing debut for Paul Newman, yet a closer look shows the attributes that would make him a mega-star. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Though it is lavish and sweeping in execution, The Silver Chalice, for all of its august and religious aspects, is not an imposing offering. Full Review

Dreadful epic noteworthy mainly for being Newman's feature debut. Full Review
May 24, 2003
Like the Thomas B. Costain book, the picture is overdrawn and sometimes tedious, but producer-director Victor Saville still manages to instill interest in what's going on, and even hits a feeling of excitement occasionally. Full Review

Rating: 4/10 -- ...the movie attempts to make a grand splash. Unhappily, the splash is more like a belly flop. Full Review

Description by

Set in Rome during the early Christian era, The Silver Chalice focuses on an ill-fated sculptor (Paul Newman) sold into slavery and torn between his adoring wife (Pier Angeli) and a wily temptress (Virginia Mayo) - and threatened in his work by a power-mad sorcerer (Jack Palance) bent on overturning Christianity and becoming his own "true Messiah."

The Silver Chalice Movie Lover: from HOUSTON, TX US -- September, 7, 2016

Fictional account of making of what some followers of Christ would have wanted the chalice of the Last Supper made and Paul Newman, one of his newest roles is the sculptor assigned to create the chalice. Worth a look.
