Right now I’m re-reading the novel, ‘The Robe’, by Lloyd C. Douglas. I’m reading it aloud to myself, as a matter of fact. A friend of mine gave me a hard-cover edition of the book a few weeks ago. I also have it in paperback, but the print is getting rather small for me to read.
I always like to read it during Lent and / or Easter.
Also, has anyone seen the 1950s movie based on it? I first saw it on Easter Sunday 1967, when ABC showed it with minimum commercial interruption.
Whenever I read ‘The Robe’ silently, I always have in my head the voices of the actors who played the main characters: Richard Burton (Marcellus Gallio), Jean Simmons (Diana Gallus), Victor Mature (Demetrius), and Dean Jagger (Barsabas Justus).
Just curious if anyone here has read the book and /or watched the movie?
