Summary
Journey through time to a gloriously extravagant Biblical setting of lust, violence, and betrayal in this meticulously restored Oscar-winning classic from legendary filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille. Victor Mature flexes his muscles through such scenes as Samson's barehanded battle with a lion, a single-handed assault on a thousand Philistine soldiers and the spectacular climax where he pulls down the pagan temple
