John Huston adapted the first 22 chapters of the Book of Genesis in this mostly silly film that takes us from Creation through Noah's Ark through Abraham's near-sacrifice of son Isaac. This is one of Huston's more personally distant projects, à la Annie or Victory; and for the most part you'd barely know there was even a director involved. On the other hand, Huston does provide some of the only liveliness on screen, playing Noah. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It's a classic! Not for young kids, though, in my opinion. But from, say, 9 and up it's great. Worth the money.Published 19 months ago by Reverend Knight
This ones not up there with the Ten Commandments or The Robe but it is watchable. Acting is okay but not great.Published 22 months ago by Diane Edwards
