    Release Date:

    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.
