King of Kings

June 28, 2007

This month I'm looking at King of Kings (1961) directed by Nicholas Ray.

Despite it's flaws it's one of my top ten Jesus Films, (although perhaps the least defensible selection) mainly down to some great visuals.

(Director: Nicholas Ray) (Cast:Jeffrey Hunter... Jesus, Siobhan McKenna... Mary, Hurd Hatfield... Pontius Pilate, Ron Randell... Lucius, Viveca Lindfors... Claudia, Rita Gam... Herodias, Carmen Sevilla... Mary Magdalene, Brigid Bazlen... Salome, Harry Guardino... Barabbas, Rip Torn... Judas, Frank Thring... Herod Antipas, Guy Rolfe... Caiaphas, Royal Dano... Peter, Robert Ryan... John The Baptist, Grégoire Aslan... Herod (as Gregoire Aslan), Gérard Tichy... Joseph (as Gerard Tichy), Antonio Mayans... Young John (as José Antonio), Rubén Rojo... Matthew (as Ruben Rojo), Michael Wager... Thomas, Félix de Pomés... Joseph of Arimathea (as Felix de Pomes), Rafael Luis Calvo... Simon of Cyrene, Tino Barrero... Andrew, Orson Welles... Narrator)
