I recently bought through Amazon.ca the movie SAMSON AND DELILAH which was sold by GROOVEYARD. I received it today and I must admit I am somewhat disapointed.
This DVD is evidently a bootleg and a very bad one. The DVD cover is of poor quality as is the disc print, obviously homemade.

That is not to mention the movie itself which looks like a clip downloaded from low quality Youtube!!!! And I don't mention the menu....

And a thing that really disapoints me is the fact that I got it from Amazon and that I am not used to that kind of low quality product at their store.

I'm sorry to say this but, in the future when I make an order at Amazon, I'll make sure it's not from GROOVEYARD.

I was soo very dissapointed when i got this movie, no where on the package does it indicate that there are chinese subtitles. When i contacted the manufacture for a refund there response was cold and short. I had to send out several email to confirm the procedure of returning the dvd for a refund. It has been over three weeks and i still have not heard back from them, This is my first bad experience with Amazon. The whole experience was very frustrating .

This is my favorite"Biblical"film. Great cast,great film production
a class act all the way. The "Ten commandments" &"Ben Hur" were all
great epics in their rights but I'm I alone when I say we're really
just waiting for the parting of the red sea and the chariot race.
This epic was told entertainingly (and mercifully) at 128 minutes
and has just as many glorious technicolor moments as the later award
winners. The so called drugged lion fight is actually no better or
worse than say "Hercules" or "Demetrius and the Gladiators" Keep in
mind this is 1949, The choregraphed Man vs.beast dance was still in
its infant stage. There's also the wedding feast fight and the bone
of an Ass massacre not to mention Climatic collapse of the mighty
Dagon temple. I hope that Paramount pays attention to detail when<BRthey finally put this technicolor wonder out on disc with original
trailer (I know Greatest show on earth is out this month so maybe
just maybe) "I'll need no eyes to find you"

One of DeMille's finest, from the sets and costumes to the superb acting and expressive music. Even the bit players are wonderful (look for George Reeves as the wounded Messenger relating the Battle of Ramath-Lehi to an incredulous George Sanders in terms that echoed the intro to Reeves' most famous role a few years later!). Lamarr is stunning, Mature is intense ("Look about you, Delilah..."), Sanders plays himself as the world-weary Seran of Gaza. Even ol'warhorse and longtime DeMille associate Henry Wilcoxson gets to shine as Prince Atur (he was originally supposed to play Samson, but was considered too old). There is no counting of the stars. Five is not nearly enough.
Our only quibble is with the way Dagon is portrayed in the temple scene. All the decor is Babylonian, and the idol looks like Moloch, the Canaanite sun god to whom certain kings of Judah used to sacrifice infants until commanded by God, through King Josiah, to desist (2 Chron. 28:3; 33:6; Jer. 7:31; 32:35; 2 Kings 23:10). The Philistines were related to the Phoenicians, not the Babylonians. Their wealth came from the sea. Dagon was an ocean god like Neptune, and was portrayed as a fish or a merman. The only decor in the movie that properly reflects Dagon are Delilah's fish earrings in the wedding scene.
This should be released on DVD so that like Miriam says at the end, we can watch his story "for a thousand years"!

De Mille, with God as his co-maker. In general, the plot follows the bible story, though Victor Mature's Samson, costumed in terry leotards and a montrous wig, bilious and flaccid, as though he couldn't pull down the papier-mache temple. He does it, though, and he (his double) wrestles a moth-eaten lion and crowns several extras with the jaw of an ass. Hedy Lamarr was in general considered too old for the role of Delilah (Lamarr was thirty six at the time) but when De Mille couldn't get pitiful Gail Russell for Delilah (she always arrived on set drunk) it had to be Lamarr, who's Delilah, with her slurry German-English would be more at home in a Yorkville Bar than in a high-tone Philistine residence. All in all, the film does not enhance the glory of De Mille or his Associate; its splendors are purely in the camp division. Among the supporting cast are George Sanders, as the head man of the Philistines, Henry Wilcoxon, looking as nobly baffled as ever, and Angela Lansburry in a brief role as Delilah's sister, for whom Mature yearns, to the inexplicable despair of Lamarr. The sets are wonderously cheasy. Paramount. Color.

... Audiences who saw "Samson and Delilah" as well as the later "Ten Commandments", really thought that the Bible was being brought to the screen accurately and faithfully. In this respect, DeMille was a genius for making a "sucker" out of the public, along the same lines as P.T. Barnum. DeMille had such a flair for the melodramatic and an uncanny ability to mix sex and religion that he fooled, and continues to fool, the public to this day....
Apart from a few of his early silent pictures, like "Male and Female" and "Joan the Woman", DeMille's sound biblical epics are just trash. They are big, colorful, loud and usually filled with special effects and gigantic set-pieces, such as the crashing of the Philistine temple. Yet the acting in all of these films is without depth and is stilted, hammy and pretentious. "Samson and Delilah" is no exception. It does entertain in spite of itself. What is worrisome is that people still watch this and other of DeMille's biblical films and believe they are faithful to scripture and history. They are not; they are simply HUMBUG!
