My husband and I have just purchased a movie by Cecil B. DeMille, “King of Kings,” which was made in the 20’s as a silent movie. If you like a more traditional, devotional approach this is really one to catch! I have never seen one so reverent, except maybe Father Peton’s films.
It actually starts with a color sequence, believe it or not. Must have been expensive.
A couple of things to note: While the actor who plays Jesus does a completely excellent job, he was fairly old for the role, and so his physical looks are not quite there. Not like Jim Caviezel in that sense. Still, he really commands a presence in spite of this drawback.
Also, for parents, Mary Magdelene has a pretty immodest costume on at the beginning of the movie.
Plenty of interesting ideas about the characters of the Bible, and most of the dialouge is direct Scripture quotations.
A great buy.
