This 1927 silent movie The King of Kings directed by celebrated film director Cecil B. Demille was on Turner Classic Movies a couple of nights ago and I watched it and taped it and it was a pretty good movie. At first I was taken aback by all of the heavy theatrical makeup that was used on some of the actors, a look that was very popular at the time and I first thought that the actor who played Jesus looked a lot older then the 33 years old that I believe Jesus was at the time but after awhile you get past that and the story of Jesus really shines through and the actor who played Jesus really gave a moving, inspirational performance and I very greatly recommend this movie. Has this version been put out on DVD yet? If not it really should be transferred to DVD! The only negative thing about this movie is the bizarre and overly theatrical depiction of Mary Magdalene and her riding in on a carriage driven by zebras and I almost gave up on the movie because of that but the scenes with the actor playing Jesus made up for the Mary Magdalene scenes. Btw: This movie is mostly in black and white with one color scene. There is a remake of this movie from 1961 and that is being shown on TCM today and I will tape and watch that one too!
