Behold! The love story of the ages!
In this glorious biblical epic, director King Vidor cinematically explores the evils of the flesh and pagan worship. A clash between King Solomon and his brother is further complicated when the Queen of Sheba seduces Solomon in an attempt to bring about Israel's downfall. Shot in Spain, the picture chronicles the exploits of its larger-than-life characters.
Yul Brynner is a strong and idealistic Solomon and the sensual Gina Lollobrigida, in exotic and revealing costumes, is magnificent (especially when performing a seductive dance to turbulent drums!). The pagan orgy is another sensational highlight of this epic film, surpassed only by the wrath of God destroying Israel's temple and the battle sequences. Vidor works with Fred A. Young, winner of three Best Cinematography Oscars to make the film beautiful to watch.
